If it is (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa382503.aspx) a Windows Protected file (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa382530.aspx), the only means for updating it is via the Microsoft approved update mechanisms (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa382540(VS.85).aspx).

Microsoft does make some suggestions for MSI authors (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa372868.aspx) though.
