I've some MSI packages, so i develop a application to install them
So my question is how can i change some properties in MSI package
in runtime,
i mean, for example:
ths msi package have define the target installation location
is C:\Program Files\....,

I dont want modify the MSI itself, but I want to intall it to other
places, like D:\SomeFolder.

how can i do this?

Did you try setting the property on the command line, like:
msiexec.exe /i your.msi TARGETDIR="C:\Program Files\...."

Alternatively you could create a transform (.mst)

P.S.: "Hello, everyone!" is not a very useful topic title. I almost deleted your post because I thought it was spam.

I will try your suggestion.
I am not familiar with transform, i must have a research about it.
