I guess you wanna disable the AutoUpdate, I worked with this some days ago, and is seems lite the default msi have some custon action that sets theese keys, so if having them as reg. keys, thew will be oerwritten by the custom action. The trick is to create e cutom action that creates this keys and is run just after some custom action called reboot or similar in the end.

You can download Orca - MSI table editor, it's free and comes as part of the windows installer SDK. Once you've installed it, open the msi and apply the transform - all the changes made by the mst are hightlighted in green. Make the additional changes you want then close the transform when you'll be prompted to save it again.

Are these properties you are talking about? If so, and they are all uppercase then they are public properties - the settings for which can be passed from command line to save editing the mst. Just depends how you want to achieve it.

e.g. msiexec /i "package name.msi" IEXPLORER=1 JAVAUPDATE=0 etc etc /qb

Cheers,
Rob.
