View Full Version : Need to remove the setup entry Add/Remove Entry Panel

04-20-2006, 09:44 AM
I am using Installshield 11.0. I am working on InstallScript MSI project. I do not want to create an entry in the Add/Remove Programs for my setup.

I have tried out the following.
1. Go to Media --> Releases--> Set the Add/Remove Programs Entry to YES.

2. I set ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT property to 1 in the Property table

3. I also remove entries of PublishFeatures, PublishProduct, RegisterProduct, RegisterUser in AdvtExecuteSequence and InstallExecuteSequence table.
Though this removes the entry in add/Remove Panel, when i run the installation for the second time, it will not run in the Maintainance mode.

Please refer to the link:


Nothig has so far worked for me. Please let know how I can resolve this.

for 1. I assume you mean you set it to "No"

Is it a legacy ARP entry, or a MSI ARP entry? If it is legacy, you will have a "Change/Remove" button, if it is a MSI ARP entry, you will have seperate "Change" and "Remove" buttons.

I set the Hide Add/Remove Entry to YES.

The Add/Remove Programs entry has Change/Remove button.
