Download one public MSI file which has digital signature from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=95743 , view its Digital Signature property:
It shows the signature is OK.
1. On IIS 6, enable WebDav folder (For detailed steps can refer to Using WebDAV with IIS), upload the MSI file to this folder, check the uploaded MSI signature property:
We can see the Signature is not valid now.
If we put other files, such as .exe, or .zip, this symptom will not happen.
I have performed Live debugging in good scenario (by putting a .exe file to webdav folder) and problematic scenario (by putting a .msi file to webdav folder).
Found out the issue is caused by the fact that the MSI file is a type of OLE doc file, and it doesn’t have the ‘CONTENTS’ stream in the ‘Bagaaqy23kudbhchAaq5u2chNd’ storage. When WEBDAV is going to update the file properties (by the PropPatch verb), the ‘CONTENTS’ stream will be created in the Bagaaqy23kudbhchAaq5u2chNd’ storage by the OLE32.dll module’s persisting stream logic. When this happened, the original digital signature that file has could be impacted as we see.

Based on the analysis result, we know that zip or exe file will not be impacted as it is not the ole doc file format.
To verify if a file is an OLE doc file, can use this stg.exe file to open it.
If the file is an ole doc file and the Bagaaqy23kudbhchAaq5u2chNd storage exists, it will be displayed like:
While uploading OLE files to IIS 6 webdav folder, it may be filled with CONTENTS information and then may cause digital signature becomes invalid. To workaround this, just zip the files. On IIS 7, there is no such a problem based on our tests.
