Having looked through some posts, I still could not find a solution to this issue.

As \pdfinfo{...} is not working while using the package hyperref. So I was wondering, how to invoke the commands such as /CreationDate /ModDate within \hypersetup

The following codes will not work while the package hyperref is loaded.

      /Author {Nicola Talbot}
      /Title  {Creating a PDF document using PDFLaTeX}
      /CreationDate {D:20040502195600}
      /ModDate {...}
      /Keywords {PDF;LaTeX}

According to the documentation of hyperref,

    Author={Tizio Sempronio},
    Title={Creating a PDF document using PDFLaTeX},

should work.

@KOF I forgot to remove a backslash, sorry. Fixed. – egreg Jan 19 '13 at 14:01
Thanks, i found out the issue is caused by using pdfauthor = {Name} or pdftitle{Title} outside pdfinfo – KOF Jan 19 '13 at 16:05
