The following command line will display all the Summary Information from a MSI:

..\msiinfo.exe ..\MSI\Output\SDKisEASY.MSI

OR:

..\msiinfo.exe ..\MSI\Output\SDKisEASY.MSI > SummaryInformation.txt

An example of the output SummaryInformation.txt would be:

Class Id for the MSI storage is {000C1048-0000-0000-b000-000000000064}

The following command line will change the Package Code value in the Summary Information of a MSI:

..\msiinfo.exe ..\MSI\Output\SDKisEASY.MSI -v {EA94C296-31B0-4866-B04D-E2EF800D2A51}

The following command line will change the Comments string in the Summary Information of a MSI:

..\msiinfo.exe ..\MSI\Output\SDKisEASY.MSI -o "Windows Installer SDK is Easy. Thank you Microsoft!"

Now the new output SummaryInformation.txt would be:
