QwertyLab's Exe to Msi Converter Free is a simple tool that converts a setup executable file (EXE) into a Windows Installer Package (MSI) that can be distributed and installed on other PCs. It automatically detects the type of installer and lets users add command-line arguments. It's a simple tool that does a simple thing that is very useful to those who need it.

Exe to Msi Converter Free's interface is a small dialog offering two entry fields, one for browsing to or entering the Setup Executable and another for adding arguments. Aside from a Web link to the developer's site and three buttons, that's all there is to this tool. There's no Help file, but one is hardly needed since Exe to Msi is practically automatic. We browsed to our Downloads folder and selected an executable at random. We clicked Build MSI, which converted our selected file and saved the new file to the same directory as its source. When we clicked Test Installer, the program initiated our new Windows Installer file, which opened normally and began the process of installing our selected software. Clicking Cancel terminated the process, if we were quick enough.

Exe to Msi Converter Free is just the sort of small, free tool that does something extremely useful when you need it. Maybe you don't need it or won't need it now, but if you should happen to, you'll be glad we told you about it.
