Blank friendly name in Windows Firwall Exception List

My application has a blank freindly name in the windows firewall exception
list when windows automatically registers it via user prompt that says:

Do you want to keep blocking this program?
[Keep Blocking] [Unblock] [As Me Later]

The name and publisher data is displayed in the above dialog, but when
choosing Unblock, the application has a blank name for its friendly name.

The program that is being added to the firewall exception list is a .net
windows application.

How do you get windows to fill in the application name for it's friendly
name instead of a blank friendly name?

I found out that windows is storing the friendly name in the registry and
that if you are developing a .net program all you need to do is add an
AssemblyTitle in the AssemblyInfo.cs file. If you do not add the
AssemblyTitle prior to allowing windows to automatically add the program to
the exception list AND run the program from the same directory, the friendly
name will be blank. In order to allow the friendly name to use an updated
AssemblyTitle AND you are not running the program from a different directory
then you may delete the path entries in the MUICache and
AuthorizedApplications->List Keys in the registry.
