Does anyone have a CA that will stream a bitmap into the Binary table?
I'd rather do it that way so it's self-documenting.
ORCA and Power Editor are too manual; easy to forget to tell my replacement that I did it.
 thanks, Rob

This reply is abit late. but for reference purposes.
I use this VB code.

(m_View and m_DB and m_Installer previously defined)

Public Sub InsertBinaryStream(ByVal strStreamName As String, ByVal strImportPath As String)
   Dim objRecord As WindowsInstaller.Record
   Dim strSQL As String
   strSQL = "SELECT `Name`,`Data` FROM Binary"
   Set m_View = m_DB.OpenView(strSQL)
   Set objRecord = m_Installer.CreateRecord(2)
   objRecord.StringData(1) = strStreamName
   Call m_View.Execute(objRecord)
   Call objRecord.SetStream(2, strImportPath)
   Call m_View.Modify(msiViewModifyAssign, objRecord)

End Sub
