I would like to setup the ARP (Add Remove Programs) for our App, to be very similar to the way Microsoft does with Windows Updates.

If you are not familiar with this, it looks like:

Windows XP - Software Updates

Windows XP Hotfix -KB890923
Security Update for Windows XP (KB896422)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB896358)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB896939)
Windows XP Hotfix - KB893086
etc...

All of the Windows Updates (belong/are displayed) within the Windows XP - Software Updates hierarchy.

I have briefly looked for info reguarding this feature...but haven't found anything, yet. Any ideas?

I don't know that there's an official way of doing this, other than using uninstallable patches with MSI 3.x.
