[wix-users] Patch not showing up in the 'View Installed updates' with Burn

Are you using an msp or an msi inside your bootstrapper? As I understand it, only upgrades applied with msp show up in the view installed updates screen.

Hi all.

I have an existing MSI that was patching and rolling back fine. I have started a new burn project and added my MSI and all is well except they do not show in 'View Installed updates' on the Program and Features screen. Patching does work though.

I did notice there was an UpgradeCode in the Bundle.wxs. How does that effect upgrade codes in other products.

My patches are based off of the MSI and not the final bootstrapper. I think that is right or as I am writing this...  do I have to patch against the Bootstrapper?

Any help would be appreciated.
