MSI Package Builder Professional 4.5.3
MSI Package Builder is a tool that allows you to create MSI packages using easy visual interface and also customize and repackage third-party installations into MSI format. You can use it to produce MSI packages ready for silent deployment and repackage non-silent EXE installations to silent MSI packages in order to prepare them for automatic remote deployment through Group Policy and other tools.
It is really easy to create, customize or repackage installations using unique Live Monitoring technology, provided by this tool. This technology allows to capture file system and registry changes and use this information to generate MSI package. It makes possible instead of specifying installation changes manually though visual editor, just monitor installation actions and create MSI that reproduce them. For example, you can start Live Monitoring, then just copy files to a required folder and once you will stop monitoring you will get an MSI that will install files to the folder.
Live Monitoring feature can be used to repackage third-party EXE installations to MSI format. This process is simple and straightforward - you just start monitoring and follow installation steps. When installation is completed you can stop monitoring and get MSI package that will perform exactly same actions as the original installation. One of the important advantages of using Live Monitoring technology over other repackaging methods is an ability to filter out unwanted changes performed by background system processes. It allows to have more accurate repackaging results.
