On Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016, multiple entries are getting created for cost estimation of MSI.

Under HKLM..\Uninstall\{ProductCode} EstimatedSize entry is created during MSI execution, but after some time i can see another entry getting automatically created sEstimatedSize2, the values indicated in this registry is same as that of EstimatedSize.

The issue is, during uninstall the {ProductCode} hive remains with that sEstimatedSize2 registry.

Anybody have any idea why this is getting created?

I am also facing similar issue. After uninstalling our MSI, guid is deleting from uninstall registry. Instead it is adding sEstimatedSize2 under \uninstall\guid.
