Windows x86 MSI Installer (2.7.6) (sig)
Windows x86 MSI program database (2.7.6) (sig)
Windows X86-64 MSI Installer (2.7.6) [1] (sig)
Windows X86-64 program database (2.7.6) [1] (sig)
Windows help file (sig)
I presume line 4 should be 'MSI program database'.
(3.x pages do not have this.)

Line 5 could add "(included in MSI installers)" for those who do not 
know. Some programs, like Open/Libre Office, require a separate download 
and install for Windows help. (This comment applies to 3.x also.)
