This has probably been answered many times before. But I couldn't find it in the forums. So, please point me to if it has already been answered. Thanks in advance.

The question is, how to change the text/title in the dialog boxes during uninstall. I am talking about the standard uninstall dialogs and not any custom dialogs. I am using VS .Net Deployment project to create my MSI and then am using VB scripts to customize it. So, what I am looking for is a solution using VB script to change the text during uninstall.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If your setup runs in full UUI mode: You could use a proeprty in the dialog title, and change the value of this property duing uninstall. But: you don't know that it's an uninstall (and not a repair, update, etc.) until the user selects the uninstall option (does VS add a dialog where users can select uninstall, or what happens if you launch your setup a second time?)
If the uninstall is invoked from the Add/Remove Programs control panel, then your setup runs in Basic UI mode and there's nothing you can customize.
