    have first a look at www.appdeploy.com
    for example, Acrobat is already an msi, so why recreating.

      hey,

      yeah i have looked there, but i maybe blind as hell, but i cannot find any easy downloads from there, as i have noted its already been packaged.
      It shows me what has been made into an msi, but i cannot find for the life of me find a download.

      Also i have seen a program called adminstudio from installsheild, anyone used this ? or recommend a good one, free is better =]

          i never used adminstudio.. sorry

          but for example acrobat reader:

          quicktime is an hardon.. espessially with itunes...
          with that one, you must create one by you'reself.
          i've done that with Winstall LE (deliverd with Windows 200 Pro)

          for vnc for example:
          http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=61
          problaby you need to batch it and run it as a startup script.

          for filemaker:

          http://appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=586
          you should edit a pdf file

          for divx, you should also create manually with winstall LE.

          winstall LE is quite simple.

          Install winstall LE.
          create before snapshot
          install package and make you're custom modifications
          Create after snapshot, and you're done.
