Multi Instance Dialog: Not showing the instance product name

Hi all,

I have created a project that creates multi-instances and during the installation sequence of each instance, I ask the user to provide a client name for the instance. I have a custom action that changes the ProductName property and appends the client name. So it ends up creating something that looks like Project_ClientA, Project_ClientB, etc in the directory structure. All that works well.

When I rerun the setup, I get the multi-instance dialog that allows me to select whether the installer is to add a new instance or modify an existing instance. In the existing instance listbox, I have the previously installed instances, however the product name for all the instances is Project_ instead of the expected "Project_ClientA," "Project_ClientB," etc.

What do I need to do to make this value display with the client name that was set in the custom action? Do I need another custom action?

Thank you!
