I need to change the Add/Remove Properties of my install. When I looked through Help on how to do that, it said to go to the General Information section and then click on the Add/Remove Properties sub-section. That section is not there. The only things I have listed are:

Project Properties
Product Properties
String Tables

How do I get Add/Remove to show up?

Thank you!

That's one of those things only available for MSI (Windows Installer) based setups. For non-MSI based projects you have to use scripting to set those values as described in:

So all I have to do is create entries in the Registry section for the things I'd like to change? Not too difficult. Changing the icon just isn't as simple as it was in Developer 7. But no matter.

Thanks!

Exactly.

For add/remove icon, you can set the DisplayIcon to an EXE name instead, not necessarily an ICO file as the kb suggests. It will use the same icon as Windows Explorer uses when displaying the EXE icon.
