  • Hi,

    I'm creating setup using VS2008 and I can able to create. The problem is the setup location is always c:\program files\default company name.

    I can rename that while installing. but, how can I change default company name while creating setup.

    Thanks.

  • If you go to solution explorer, click setup project(setup1 by default) and check its properties, there are place where you can put company name and other information.


    Simlarly (when setup prject is active project), if you go to View Menu, Editor, File System Editor

    Click Application Folder and look for its properties and check DefaultLocation and change it for another question.

    If you set DefaultLocation to [WindowsVolume]\MYFolder, then your program is installed in c:\MyFolder (if windows is in C:)

    I think thread's main question is different and there are other questions that follows through, and the one marked(mine) is not the main question again. So I asked bbby to mark proper answer and helpful post very wisely. You dont required to mark everything as answer, there can be one/many  answer and helpful posts in a thread. Do not mark your own post as answer if its not a solution to your problem.

    why you mark yourself as answer?
    "thanks for your help! It's working fine." is not the answer

  • Hi,

    Be aware that the simplest way goes a little bit weird.

    Select the Setup by left clicking on the setup project not the right and properties.

    Now choose for the properties view pane.

    In that you can change almost everything about company and things like that.
