Hi, and one more problem,

after installation there is a link in the Add/Remove item in the control panel, where support information are provided. There is only show the version number I entered in the setup project options. How can I fill these dialog with more details or what can I do that this dialog will disappear. I filled all possible properties in the setup project properties.

Thanks for your help

To modify what is put in Add/Remove by default you need to access the registry directly. Something like this modifies the name, <> means insert your info here:

In OnFirstUIAfter do something like:

  szKey= "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{<PROJECT_GUID>}";  
  nRet = RegDBSetKeyValueEx(szKey, "DisplayName", REGDB_STRING, "<NEW NAME>", nSize);

Check out the post by Clareb22 on Support Information for a link to other parameters you can modify this way.

Under ISD 7.04 look under General Information: Add/Remove Programs, all the information you could ever want to modify is under here.

Dagostini: what you say is correct for InstallShield Developer 7. However this forum is about InstallShield Professional 7. Therefore prozacrefugee's suggestions is the right one.
