The Summary Information Stream of the patch contains - "A semicolon-delimited list of product codes for valid targets for this patch."
"Two transforms are stored in the patch for each target database, and more than one pair of transforms can be in a patch if there are multiple targets. "
Sorry about my last reply, I now think it is possible, but if you have to support multiple packages (read - Product Codes), then you patch package could become quite large.
If you want more detail, you should read up on the MSI documentation inside the windows SDK.
Install Shield should provide functionality to create the patch for multiple product codes.
Does that help??

When you said "Install shield should provide functionality to create the patch for multiple product codes", i work with install shield developper 8 and i'm not see anything about multiple product code.
So, i'm going to read the MSI documentation inside the windows SDK.

When i said "Install Shield should", i meant that install shield should provide this functionality, but probably doesnt... like quite a few other features
