The PATCHNEWSUMMARYSUBJECT property updates the Subject Summary property of an administrative image during patching. This property is only set by a transform in a .msp file. The .msp file must include a transform that adds this property to the Property table and sets its value. The installer then writes the value of PATCHNEWSUMMARYSUBJECT to the Revision Number Summary property.


The PATCHNEWPACKAGECODE, PATCHNEWSUMMARYCOMMENTS, and PATCHNEWSUMMARYSUBJECT properties are used to update the summary information when a patch is installed to an administrative image.
