Create msi to wrap setup.exe

We have a customer that requires an msi installer for their roll-out system. We have a setup.exe installer (wrapping an msi with pre-requisites).

I can create an msi that installs the exe without any issues, but I am wondering if there is someway to do this nicely where it won't leave an entry in Add/Remove Programs? Currently I have a batch file that runs at the end of the msi as a custom action that uninstalls the msi after the exe is installed, but this is kind of messy and was hoping there is a better way to do this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Setting the ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT property to 1 using the command line or a transform prevents the application from being displayed in the Add or Remove Programs list of Control Panel.
