Setting a property from the command-line

There seems to be a bug in the way Visual Studio.NET sets properties when they generate their msi files. I have a screen during the install UI that asks the user to enter data into a few text fields. And I would like it if they could simply supply the data via the command-line and run the install silently. However, it seems that VS.NET has some sort of string value it uses to store the data in during the install, and then it runs a custom action to set the "real" property in the properties table equal to this string value. And if I just try to set the "real" property via the command-line, it doesn't work because I think it's just overwriting the value later.

Any ideas how to do this?

Is your property in all upper case letters?
