There's no way to do this natively in MSI. You would have to build a script to do this. You could then either run the script as a Custom Action, setting each property's value with Session.Property or run it externally and pass the properties and values on the command line.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
