Ran into this today on my patching work.
1. If I set both Burn and the MSI to visible.. Then both end up in the ARP list. Patching works. Looks bad to the customer
2. If I set Burn to hide and the MSI visible... then patching works but uninstalling the msi works but fails to uninstall burn.
3. If I set Burn to visible and hide the MSI (MsiPackage Visible="no") patching works but does not show up in the ARP list - view installed updates.
I have learned that best practice is Burn needs to be in the ARP list and that is ok.
So the question is.
How do I get the patches to show up in the ARP list - view installed updates if the MSI is hidden? (MsiPackage Visible="no")
