msu_package should be a sub resource of the primary package resource similar to windows_package etc...

Chef Version

chef-client 14.10.9

Platform Version

any supported windows version

Replication Case

create a resource like:

package 'kb2999226' do
  source ''

Client Output

You'll get an error stating it's unable to determine the install type for .msu file
if you use msu_package resource it installs correctly.
