Random GUID on install

I have an installscript install that is installing with a random guid. This guid is used for this folder:
C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{09713114-FA89-44B5-801E-A605FEDFFBD6}

And this registry key:

The guid "{09713114-FA89-44B5-801E-A605FEDFFBD6}" is different each time it installs. This is a huge headache for me because it won't uninstall silently and I need to create a script that installs it. I can't find the A/R entry with my script because it's always different.

Is there a way to hard-code this GUID?

If you got the source code of the project:
Check the 'Maintenance Experience' setting at General Properties-Project Properties. It looks like that it is set to 'Multi-Instance'. Set it to 'Standard'.
