Exe to Msi Converter free
The free edition of Exe to Msi Converter facilitates conversions of setup kits from executable files to MSI items, in order to deploy software via GPO (Group Policy) in an Active Directory environment. It is very simple to use, as it comes bundles with light features.
After a brief and uneventful setup procedure that does not require special attention, you are greeted by a standard window with a plain and simple layout, representing Exe to Msi Converter's interface.
You can point out the installer file path of an executable using the file browser, as the drag-and-drop feature is not supported.
Building an MSI package is done with the simple click of a button, and the task is carried out in no time (depending on the size of the executable). Output items are automatically delivered to the same location as the source items, and the target folder is opened by default when the conversion job is completed.
Exe to Msi Converter Free also shows information on the selected installer in the primary panel (although it had a failed attempt during our evaluation), and lets advanced users write command-line parameters for execution.
Unfortunately, the app does not integrate additional options. For example, batch processing is not supported, and you cannot select a custom output directory.
For extra features you can look into the professional edition of Exe to Msi Converter, where you can edit registry values and install and uninstall scripts, as well as select between three conversion modes (e.g. record the GUI automation script, create an MSI package from the repackager), among others. As far as Exe to Msi Converter Free is concerned, the program servers its purpose in a straightforward manner.
