I have to create a .MST file that contains defined values for some properties for my MSI package. Specifically there is a DBPASSWORD property where I need to set the password of a SQL Server database, which is created during the installation of the product.

The problem is that the password is stored as plain text in the MST database.

Is there a way of, having encrypted the password and stored it in a new property in the MST, to decrypt it and then put the resulting unencrypted password back into DBPASSWORD?

Is there a better alternative to handling passwords that should be encrypted in a .MST file?
