I've never been sure and have never seen an explanation. I think it has something to do with whether the installer is 32-bit or 64-bit, but I'm not sure. I see that Bill has finally partnered with someone to take WinPatrol over - Ruiware. There has been something about a long-term family illness and him not wanting to give WinPatrol up to someone who would load the download up with Toolbars and other junk.

.msi is the type of installer (as opposed to .exe)
Here are a couple of links about the differences
http://www.symantec.com/connect/articles/understanding-difference-between-exe-and-msi
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17895...-setup-exe-file

I've seen program install files that came as .exe for 32-bit Windows, but .msi for 64-bit Windows.
For example, 7-zip installers are like that: http://www.7-zip.org/

But I don't think it has to be that way.
Here is a site where Microsoft talks about how to create a 32-bit .msi installer

Thank you, Jenny. I thought it was something to do with that, but not sure. Winfrey, I used the .exe download.
