What's new in MSI 5 on Windows 8
According to the documentation:
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.
