| Does anyone know of a way to convert a .cmd file to a .msi file?

| Thanks in advance,

I don't think you understand the difference between the two. One being an interpreted
script and the other being a packaged installer.

What are you trying to accomplish ?

| Does this make sense?

Yes. I understand. However there is MORE to this that just .CMD to .MSI .
