This information can be set under Step 1 - General Information - Add/Remove Programs. Please note the following fields:

Support Contact
Support URL
Support Phone Number

Please simply update the information in these fields to modify the information displayed in Add/Remove Programs.

I hope this helps!

this is not good for me as I need to update this information on runtime (through the InstallScript)
The problem is that because I need to OEM our product. The Manufacturer name must not appear anywhere or must b changed dinamicaly
I tried to change this Msi Property (Manufacturer) but because it is private I could not do it. My Managers insist that a new release must not be build for each OEM company. So I must get rid of reference to the comapny name. This is why I must remove the information from the Add/Remove Dialog.
