Here’s a quick summary what’s new in the MSI engine that comes with Windows 8.

What’s new in MSI 5 on Windows 8

According to the documentation:

  • nothing

My own findings so far:

  • Windows Installer runtime version – as indicated by the file version of msi.dll – is 5.0.9200.16384
  • VersionNT = 602 (so similar to Windows 7 Microsoft didn’t increment the major version for application compatibility reasons)
  • WindowsBuild = 9200

According to Darwin Sanoy, Windows Installer also processes Appx Packages when installing Windows Store Apps.
