We make various software at my university and it's now my job to automate the daily build installations.

Does anyone know a tool that would automate the installations? The installations are regular .exe's and they provide the standard install dialog, where you click Next, Next, ..., Finish.

Can the people building the packages create MSIs instead of EXEs? It would make deployment a lot easier. –  Zoredache Oct 26 '11 at 18:08
    
It's not possible. But they are some kind of installers, maybe install shield. There are actually several different installers. –  bodacydo Oct 26 '11 at 18:11
    
Many installers can be automated, but you may need to bug the developers. They should be able to tell you if those installers support some kind of automated install. –  Zoredache Oct 26 '11 at 18:16
    
Yes, please bug them for MSIs. They were designed for this purpose. –  surfasb Oct 27 '11 at 2:50

You can try to see at Almeza MultiSet

From Almeza MultiSet features page

3) Automatic installation of any software. It is possible to create a CD/DVD that will automatically install any sets of software on multiple computers. For example, after Windows is installed, it is possible to install service packs, drivers, localizations, any software (codecs, audio players, service tools...) and configure them automatically as well.

4) Creating a bootable disk for simultaneous unattended Windows and software installation. It is possible to create a disk that will install both Windows and a set of software.
