is used by 7 questions to denote msiexec.exe, which is the actual executable of Microsoft's Windows Installer program.

Seeing as we already have a tag for , and the fact that is already a synonym* of it, this tag should probably be merged (and potentially synonymised) with .


* see here and here for why msi is a synonym and doesn't represent the company MSI.

As above has been merged into and a synonym created.


Agreed. Since the tags should have tags in any case, I've gone ahead and started tagging them as such too.

    Please stop adding redundant tags. If these are merged or synonomized, this will create additional cleanup. Thanks.

  • Actually I guess this leads me to another question: Why not just remove the msiexec tag from those questions and add windows-installer? Commented Nov 10, 2015 at 17:27
  • Synonomizing or merging eliminates the need for any of those changes, or bumping old questions with edits.

  • Got it. In a case when there is 6 questions in the tag and there hasn't been a new one in over a year, I wonder if it isn't easier to just retag them. Sorry for jumping the gun there though. Commented Nov 10, 2015 at 17:34
