If I am not mistaken you meant source media files is it? source files are somthing which is given to us for packaging ,it can be a setup.exe or a MSI or MSI/MST etc..You can say there are the input for us for repackaging,hope it makes sense.

As Sumit explained above, source files can be setup.exe, MSI, MSI/MST and it can also be a set of loose files which you need to package.

If you mean SOURCELIST property, it is a semicolon-delimited list of source paths to the application's installation package. Once the package is installed, you could find the list in registry HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\<ID>\SourceList.
