Hello Group,

What are the allowable values that I can provide for:
<Package InstallerVersion="200"
I found the documentation, but it only mentions 200 and 405

I have an installer that needs to run on XP sp3, and am going through the best practices guide, which mentions upgrading your installer version<https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/msi/windows-installer-best-practices#update-the-windows-installer-version>. Up till now we've been using 200. I think I can get away with 3.0, 3.1 or even 4.5 from my reading, so I want to know what values to try with InstallerVersion attribute.
The documentation mentions 405 which I'm not sure if that is a typo and meant 450, or if that is intended?
I'd guess 300 for 3.0?
3.1 is 301 or 310?

Lastly, how do I check what version has been built into my MSI?
I open my MSI with Orca, but don't see any tables with InstallerVersion = 200, unless it is a conventional default.
