Each installation package includes an .msi file, which contains an installation database, a summary information stream, and data streams for various parts of the installation. The .msi file can also contain one or more transforms, internal source files, and external source files or cabinet files required by the installation.

multiselection data object

A data object that a snap-in creates when it receives the MMC_MULTI_SELECT_COOKIE special cookie value in a call to its IComponent::QueryDataObject method. MMC requests a multiselection data object during a multiple selection. This data object should supply the list of node types for all of the currently selected result items owned by the snap-in in the multiple selection.
