Configuring ClickOnce prerequisite name in Add/Remove programs from Setup and Deployment project RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a VS 2008 Setup and Deployment project that simply copies files to
    Common Files Folder/Company Name/Product Name as part of a ClickOnce prerequisite installation.

    I will like to be able to specify the name the Windows Installer uses to represent this prerequisite in the Add/Remove programs dialog.
    How do I do this?

    Do you mean that you want to specify the name of the application in Add/Remove programs?

    If yes, please go to "Project" Menu >> [Project Name] Properties >> "Publish" tab >> Options >> Write the name in "Product Name" textbox.
