Hi,

I've got a Basic MSI application. The documentation says if I set [ProductName] that [ProdcutName] will display as the product name in add/remove programs. I set [ProductName] through a Custom Action. My paths have changed to the new [ProductName], but the uninstall name has not changed.

How can I force this name to change?

Thanks

Hi Folks,

There needs to be an item like the ASP.NET forums where you can search by 'answered correctly'. I finally found the answer.

You need to set [ProductName] twice - once in UI sequence and once in Exec Sequense to get it to display in the dialogs and display in uninstall.
