    This is the first FREE MSI creating package I have found, figured I'd share it :)

    What makes you think it's free? Last time I looked, FlexNet admin studio v7.5 standard was $1,799.00 (their "enterprise version" is $8,999.00).

    The only "free" version is their evaluation version.

    There are a lot of free MSI editors out there..

    MaSaI (now owned by ScriptLogic and commercial - but you can still find an older free version floating around)

    Caphyon has a freeware version of their Advanced Installer product

    You can use Wise Install Tailer to create transforms to customize existing MSI packages (easier than taking a full MSI package apart and recreating a new package)

    You can use the WiX toolset

    MSICreate is free for non-commerical use

    QWERTY.MSI and MSIBuilder are also out there

    Of course, there is always the MS provided ORCA

    edit: fixed a URL link

    Thanks for the alternative recommendations Fitz :)
