How can I prevent my application from appearing in Add/Remove Programs? I am using Install Shield Professional 6.3 on Windows NT. To uninstall, we ask the user to just go to the install directory and delete the parent folder. We do not want the item to appear in Add/Remove prgms.
Thank you very much.

Well the simplest way is to remove the uninstall's corresponding DisplayName entry from the Windows registry.
