Hi,

I am working with Basic MSI project and our software version is four number like 1.2.3.4 but the install shield only uses the first three. Is it possible some how to hide the installshield product version number so that after installation it is not visible int he add/remove list in windows.

Thanks for the help

You have to modify one of the following keys, according to your situation:
For 64-bit machine, one of the two keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\DisplayVersion

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\DisplayVersion

For 32-bit machine:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\DisplayVersion
