They're in a hidden folder in %systemroot%\Installer - you might not see it
in the UI, so typing the path into the address bar of explorer will help.
The files are not named in their original way, afaik in a
five-alphanumeric-shortened way, I'd need to check that now. 

One of those files is your MSI - you just have to find out which one. That
can be sort of a pain in the rectum on a machine with lots of packages
installed. But better than nothing...

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

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?
