I'm wondering how to convert a .exe to msi package and then deploy it in GPO.
We running a Windows 2003 Server and the clients are Windows XP. I have downloaded a program called Advanced Installer and managed to create a msi package containing the msn .exe, but when running the msi all that it really did was to unpack the msn .exe to c:\program files.
I want to convert the msn .exe to msi and, using GPO, deploy it with
msiexec silently. So upon next reboot of clients, or
gpupdate /force, the msn msi is deployed automatically on the clients.
I have no previous experience, am i in the right track or is there another way to do this?
