Can we use InstallScript MSI project for Windows Vista Logo Program?

and can we use an unique identifier GUID for the installation which install a 32-bit or a 64-bit printer drivers versions (depends of vista version)?

because Microsoft say that :

ProductCode - is a unique identifier for the particular product release, represented as a string GUID, for example "{12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012}". Letters used in this GUID must be uppercase. This ID must vary for different versions and languages. The 32-bit and 64-bit versions of an application's package must be assigned different product codes

Is there a particular reason you would choose InstallScript Msi over a Basic Msi project? I would personally reccomend that people targetting Vista use Basic Msi projects unless there is something that InstallScript can do that a Basic Msi project cannot do.

Windows installer allows you to include both 64-bit and 32-bit components in your project. So you can have one setup program that works on both 32 bit and 64 bit machines.

As described in the below document, Microsoft reccomends that 32-bit installations contain only 32-bit components. For a 64-bit installation, you are free to intermix 32-bit and 64-bit components.

Thus, if you intend to create a package that will install on 32-bit operating systems, you will need to generate a unique product code and package code for the 32-bit installation and for the 64-bit installation.
