Hello. I noticed that with QuickPatch Projects, you dont get to enter the name of the application, and it will take it from the .msi file you point it to.

Is there a way to force a different name into the quick patch? Some of our installations are small, but use a different name that gets displayed so that our clients won't get it and the original confused.

For Example, the patch would be called a Year End Update, and if our clients saw a welcome screen that said Version 8.4 instead of Year end update, they would think that either we sent them the wrong file, or that they grabbed the wrong CD.

I'm afraid this is not possible. This is because, even though the path looks like another setup, it essentially runs the original setup in repair mode with a different set of parameters. So basically the "Patch Welcome" dialog you see is actually defined in the original setup itself. This is the way the Windows Installer behaves. Sorry.
