Setting Manufacturer

P: n/a
I'm getting forgetful - can someone please remind me where I can edit
the 'Manufacturer' setting in VB.Net 2003 Pro, ie the string that's
used for the default outer folder name during the standard deployment
process?

Thanks

Select the setup project and change the value of its 'Manufacturer'
property.

Yes thanks - obvious once you've got the setup project properties
displayed!

Can I ask a related follow-up:

'ProductName' in this same setup project properties page seems to
default to the name of the setup project, eg MyProgramSetup1. I
imagine that typically this ProductName setting should be just
MyProgram, ie omitting the Setup1 suffix. This would then presumably
cause the program to be installed into eg C:\Program
Files\Manufacturer\MyProgram, which seems logical.

Have I understood this correctly? In other words for my relatively
simple installation needs, I should always change the default setting
for ProductName to MyProgram (or its equivalent for other projects.)
in the Setup properties.

TIA

Yes, that is what I normally do:

Project Name = "My Program"
Title = "My Program Setup"
Hope this helps
