Description of problem:
With the introduction of virtio-win 1.9.12 the process for installing GT will differ, instead of running the msi-s there is now an exe file for this.
Also guide for automated(command line) installation needs updating for the same reasons.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a windows VM
2. attach virtio-win CD to the VM
3. check installation through cmd line and graphical interface according to the documentation
documentation should be updated to reflect latest changes
In which RHV release does this version of virtio-win start appearing?
Technically 4.4.3 but virtio-win is provided via RHEL channels (currently nighty) so now it will be in all of them.
Can you provide me

Besides the file being an exe instead of an MSI, are there any other differences?
What are the file names now?
File name is 'virtio-win-guest-tools.exe', the installation through UI is the same.
There is a difference in console installation, we can't select only specific drivers to install as with the msi, all the drivers are installed by default.
This can be done when 'virtio-win-gt-x64.msi' is used for drivers installation (same arguments as with the previous virtio-win) and then install qemu and ovirt guest-agents from their respective msis ('ovirt-guest-agent-x64.msi' and 'guest-agent/qemu-ga-x86_64.msi')
Why do I still see the msi files in the list of packages for virtio-win-1.9.12-2 :
Those files are still there, but their functionality changed a little bit, those msi's don't install guest agents currently, as I mentioned in comment#5.
