Hi,

Please let me know,how can I modify an Installer msi's subject and title while creating the msi using IsCmdBld.
Is there any parameters available for IsCmdBld.exe to update subject and title of an Installer msi.

Hi Dan ,

I have used vbscript to update  the  Title Information.

In my machine it has InstallShield 2013 SAB and I used 

Set pProject = CreateObject ("IswiAuto20.ISWiProject")

I got an error " ISWiAuto20: File does not exist"

Please let me know how to resolve this issue..

With a bit of rudimentary VBScript (or C++), the InstallShield automation interface provides a straightforward way of modifying Summary Information Stream settings (like Subject and Title) using the ISWiSISProperties Collection (search for ISWiSISProperties in the InstallShield internal Help).

Hi.i don't have a copy of InstallShield 2013 installed on any of my computers. Can you do a Help and About, and check to see if the version is, in fact, 20?Best regards,- Dan______________________________________________Sent from my mobile phone.  As a result,  auto-correct will be blamed for any and all typos, misspellings, and grammar errors.

You can accomplish that by having separate Product Configurations.

Go to the Releases tab.

Right click on Releases and select 'New Product Configuration'.

On the 'General' tab for each Product Configuration you can enter Subject and Title.

Then you can specify the desired Product Configuration with the -a option in your command line for IsCmdBld.exe.
