I am the professional. You'd be surprised how hard it is to find a place that can actually repack.

There's no .MSI in the thing and I verified that with the vendor. It's straight up executable. That's also when they told to me to put in a feature request.

Setup captures are a last resort as we try to stay as close to the vendor installer as possible. The captures always pick up garbage, even on a machine stripped down to nothing specifically setup for the purpose. For an installation that runs for 45 minutes on a normal machine, that's a lot of time to pick up a lot of garbage to trim out of the install. Not to mention captures that include drivers are a royal pain in the ass to get perfect.

And then there's dealing with the bugs in the capture software.
