I would like to build an MSI file for Active Directory deployment. Instead of taking a pre install snapshot, installing the application, taking a post install snapshot and packaging the differences in an MSI file. I would like to put a setup.exe file inside a MSI file and run it with the /silent switch.

Is there any free or cheap programs that could do this?


The Windows Installer Wrapper Wizard will do what you want. It's scant on documentation and you should test the heck out of anything you make with it.
