      Description

      Currently, the windows package provider excludes hidden applications (those whose SystemComponent registry value is set to 1) from its instances method (both exe and msi). This is done so that puppet has parity with what is displayed in Add/Remove Programs, e.g. SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2 Common Files .

      But it means if you install a hidden application, then puppet won't know it's installed, and try to reinstall it next time. For example, https://groups.google.com/d/topic/puppet-users/ftvvO51bX1U/discussion
