creating exe to msi

srikant8
I have Advanced Installer to convert exe to msi files and i used to deploy/install remotely.

In Advanced Installer to convert to msi file firstly i need to install on my own pc and then i convert to msi fils where exe installed in my local pc like (c:/program files/real/real player/***.exe). Its working for all the programs.

Problem is that when i tried to select the real player exe files, it shows 4 exe files and do not know which one i have to select to create msi files(the exe includes fixrjb.exe, realjbox.exe,realplay.exe and Recodingmanager.exe). I tried indivigually all exe files but its installing but not working at all.

Can't find any solutions.

thanks

Convert all the exe files to msi, then use a packager to package the 4 msi install files to one package this should resolve your issue.

RealPLayer 10 is already in the MSI format..it may be an INstall Shield wrap, but in any case, no repackage is required......

Try to use Exe to msi converter. It creates a msi package from exe. No need to install msi before.

You have to try EMCO MSI Package Builder. We use it very often and it always works well. The best repackager IMO. Find more info here: http://www.emco.is/products/msi-package-builder/features.php. Video Tour: http://www.emco.is/products/msi-package-builder/video-tour.php.
