1. PUBLIC Properties only. It's a security thing.

2. You already get verbose logging. What do you want to change?

Subject: [wix-users] Setting MSI properties from a bundle

I suspect I already know the answers to these questions, but I'd love to be proved wrong :) (or just have a definitive answer in general)

1. In a bundle, can the MsiProperty element set any property, or can it only set public properties?

And somewhat related:
2. Is there a way to set the logging level of an msi from inside a bundle?  My first thought was to set the MsiLogging property, but I assume that won't work because MsiLogging isn't public.
