MSI 3.0

I’m in training today and tomorrow for MSI (Microsoft Installer) 3.0. It’s pretty sexy stuff, though today we’re primarily going over MSI 2.0. I’ve used MSI packaging technologies for some time because of my deployments manually and through SMS, but now I’m getting a much better understanding as to the behind-the-scenes activity. Tomorrow I’ll go over the enhancements in 3.0. For now, I can say that XP service pack 2 (RC at the moment) has the completed MSI 3.0 code in it.
