Ok thanks, after the upgradable wpkg GUI installer is released, I will 
give the scripted way a try and see what happens.

I'm thinking in packages.xml something like:

   name="WPKG GUI Installer upgrade from old WPKG method"
    <install cmd='%systemroot%\system32\cmd -c "instsrv "Windows 
Packager" remove"' />
    <install cmd='%systemroot%\system32\msiexec.exe /i 
"\\server\wpkg\pkg\WPKGSetup.msi ...."' />

but I'm kind of thinking that instsrv will remove Windows Packager and 
not have it execute the install of WPKGSetup as the next step.  But I 
shall wait and see.  Thanks.
