ProviderKey Attribute (Dependency Extension)

Optional attribute to explicitly author the provider key for the entire bundle.
Windows Installer references
None
Parents
Bundle
Remarks

This provider key is designed to persist throughout compatible upgrades so that dependent bundles do not have to be reinstalled and will not prevent your product from being upgraded. If this attribute is not authored, the value is the automatically-generated bundle ID and will not automatically support upgrades.

Only a single provider key is supported for bundles. To author that your bundle provides additional features via packages, author different provider keys for your packages.
