You are correct, the MsiFileHash table is not populated for Setup and Deployment project msi's. From looking in the Patching code in WiX, it appears it will add the MsiFileHash entry for unversioned files into the transform for files that have changed when binding the transform into the patch.

One of the ways to get an idea of what's protected on Win2k/XP/Server 2003 is to run this program below, listing what's protected on the OS you run it on. It doesn't work on Vista because the protected resource implementation is different. Otherwise you generally have to get knowledgeable about

None of the above (er, below). It needs to be IconStrawberry.exe, no brackets. That is, an exact match for the Icon/@Id value. The file IconStrawberry.exe will be included in a stream in the installer database, and at install time will be copied into a special folder under C:\Windows\Installer
