InstallerVersion shows up in the Summary Information stream. See Page Count

The Page Count Summary property is documented here:

"For a minimum of Windows Installer 3.1, this property must be set to 301."

Here are the released versions of the Windows Installer:

It says Windows XP with Service Pack 3 shipped with Windows Installer 3.1
(version 3.1.4001.5512).
