Currently we have the tag which (according to the description) is supposed to be used for tagging questions about Windows .msi installer files. However, there are quite a few questions (about a third) where people have used the tag because they are asking about issues relating to MSI hardware. Most of the questions about MSI hardware are a few years old so I'm guessing the tag's description was edited at some point.

My thought is that maybe we should have an tag for questions about MSI products and a tag called or or something similar for questions about MSI installers? Or we could just remove the msi tag from the questions about hardware.

Questions referring to the Windows Installer packages (.msi files) should be tagged .

The tag should be merged (and synonymized) into as company tags aren't very helpful and people will use the tag to refer to Windows Installer packages anyway.

  • Over the last couple of days I've suggested edits on all uses of [msi]-the-company (there's only a couple left pending) - once they're cleared you should be right to synonymise [msi] with [windows-installer] :) – Robotnik Sep 24 '14 at 4:50

I agree with (could be too) and merge also which excerpt also says that means the same thing.
