Is there a tag or general area to ask questions about the microsoft installer and/or windows installer?

I inherited an application that uses Install Shield to create an install package. I've asked their tech support and they say the following are Microsoft Installer Condition Builder Conditions with the property of _IsMaintenance.

ALBX_UPGRADE=10000 AND (ALBX_INSTALL_TYPE=1 OR ALBX_INSTALL_TYPE=3)

Can someone point me or tell me what the above means or point me in the right direction. I have searched all of the above codes and I'm finding nothing online. It may be older code/conditions but I would expect to find something.

This particular condition is set on a SQL Schema script.

I'm looking for anything that explains these codes or any of the codes associated to conditional statements for MSI.

Any help is appreciated.

I only put the windows-app-sdk-general tag because I could not find ANYTHING for MSI.
