Hi again folks.. I'm creating an MSI from scratch which I want to run on a 64-bit OS. I am trying to follow this guide:

http://blogs.msdn.com/heaths/archive/2005/10/24/windows-installer-on-64-bit-platforms.aspx

In the guide, the author says to set the Template Summary field to either Intel64 or x64. I have tried changing the value in the database however upon compiling the MSI, the new value is reverted to the old value. The article also mentions "For these values to be effective, the database schema must be set to at least 200."

How do go about changing the database schema to be at least 200?
