Deployment - using Registry items

P: n/a
I'm setting up a VB.NET deployment project and everything works fine. In
particular, I want to set certain Registry keys with values during the
deployment - this works great too.

However, I notice that there is a variable within the Registry Editor of the
deployment project, and it is called "[Manufacturer]". Whenever this
variable is encountered during the installation (ie: via the MSI installer)
the term "[Manfacturer]" gets replaced with our company name, ie: "Value Pak

1) Where does [Manfacturer] get our company name from?

2) Are there other registry variables that can be used during deployment? In
particular I want one that represents my application name, ie:
"[Application]", but I tried it and it doesn't work.

Thanks in advance,

Right Click on the installer project and look at properties.

That works great. I notice that some of the properties can be used as
registry variables but others can't, nevertheless the one I want is there.
For example, I can use [ProductName] and it works fine (inserting my program
name into the registry in its place), but [Title] doesn't work even though
it's listed as a property. Not a big deal - just interesting that one works
and the other doesn't.
