Thanks for your post.
Yes you can use SQL Packager to change the collation when installing a new database.
You can do this one of two way:
1. During the setup of the project:
When setting up a new project, on the last step of the wizard select the 'Extra Package Info' button. You can set the new collation in the 'Database Properties' tab.
2. When running the package:
When you run the Package, select the 'Advanced' option and change the collation.
I hope this does what you need.
