Installer project (MSI) for branding versions

We need a Installer solution for branding versions.

Background: we develop tools that are sold by branding partners too. As there are many partners, we want to create a [url removed, login to view] (or .msi) for every partner. The branding in our tools is just done with a simple file in the installation directory. The only difference between our own setup and the setups for our partners is this single file. As we update our tools quite often, we don't want to create a new setup for every partner on each update and we don't want the customer to have to download the latest update on installation first. So we want always the newest version of our tool to be available for download, by just updating 1 .msi

The main .msi is always on our servers available and this setup will be updated by us.

So we need a solution, that downloads the main .msi and installs it and then put the branding file into install dir. This should be done in a smooth way for the user.

We are using VS 2010 and VS 2012 and our tools req. .Net 2 or .Net 4

Please provide details on how you will realize this approach.

Just to clarify the problem:

We sell our tools with our logo and deliver a .msi (lets call it main.msi) We update this .msi when we finisched a new version, so new costumers download allways the newest version. Thats no problem so far.

But we have a lot of partners how sell our tool, too. These partners have their own logo and so on in our tool. This is done with just a small file called program.bra

This is actually a encypted zip file containing a logo and a xml file with partner information.

At the moment we have to build a new main.msi for every partner when we update our main.msi

With 50 partners and growing, we can't handle this anymore. So we need a solution, to just deliver a "static" individual setup for every partner and install our main.msi an copy the program.bra into the install dir.
