Tired of spending time looking for patch detection rules for MSP installer files? look no further, this little tool automatically generates you a valid registry detection key by simply importing the MSP file into the tool.
Requires PowerShell V3 or above.
MSI Powershell module by Heath Stewart. (https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/MSI/3.2.31-g4a6be0535a)

Some patch files are applicable to more than one product. In this instance as above a dropbox is displayed where you can choose the correct product code, or you can browse to the base MSI file that the patch is designed for.
