Dynamically Set Windows Service Name by config

Hello, I am using the Limited Edition version of InstallShield for Visual Studio (2012-2013).
My .NET service sets the service name dynamically from the app.config file ... and I was wondering how I could use the config's Service Name to set the service name in InstallShield. Is this possible with the Limited Edition version?

Thanks in advance,
Daniel Brooks

Both the Service Name and the Display name can evaluate a property in brackets during run time.
You can use a custom action to read in the string and set it as a property.
