Updating Windows File Summary Data

I am looking for a way in Python to update Windows File Summary
Metadata. By that I mean the data (Title, Subject, Keywords, Comments)
found when you right click a windows file, select properties and then
summary. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I'm not sure if modifying that metadata works the same way as updating
version metadata. If so, verstamp.py here might help you get started:

Pywin32 has functions to read and write these properties.
Take a look at testStorage.py in the \win32\test directory for
an example of how to use them.
