Hello,

Is it any API that I can use to change the property for a MSI file? What I want to do is update the Title information field for an existing MSI file.

Thanks.

Thanks for your answer but I want to do it by myself with vb6 if it's possible.

In that case you will have to use MSI.dll API calls.  I have not worked with these, but here are some info to get you started.

OK, thanks
Right now I don't have the time to look at this. I just browsed on the msdn site and saw much "return" functions, not much "set" functions but maybe it will work and if it does you'll have my points.
