%SystemRoot%\Installer (a hidden folder) and possibly subfolders.
If you right-click on the Windows Explorer columns (must be in the
details view) in the details pane (Name, Size, Type, Date Modified,
Attributes), then select More... you may be able to add columns for
subject and title, which will then display the friendly names.  If you
cannot select those columns, the file properties, summary tab will show
you the friendly names.
Also, self-healing references the LastUsedSource from the Windows
Installer Registry entries.

        Subject: [gptalk] Lost MSI

        One of our servers has died, one MSI which came from that server
was never backed up, and so i dont have a copy of it. 
        The msi is still installed on a machine and I am able to
change/repair the application. 
        I have searched for the msi by name and generally *.msi on the
machine and cant find it. 
        If the msi can repair itself then it must be stored locally -
does anyone know where?
