View Full Version : How to change product name?

For business reason, we need to change our product name. We are using InstallShield 11, Basic MSI Project. We try update the Name under Installation Information -> General Information -> Product Properties. Then we verify it under Behavior and Logic -> Property Manager -> ProductName. They both show the right name we want but the result msi file still using the old name.

We also look at .ism file, we found the old name and try to change it, but InstallShield 11 does not like it.

Please advise. Maybe we miss something here for changing the product name.

I think there's a setting in the build configuration properties to override the MSI file name; perhaps that is being set?

If you haven't yet, you might search for your product name in the Direct Editor view; that should help you zoom in on any internal tables referring to the old name.
