custom exe name for Uninstall

Hi,

with InstallShield 2019 IS adds 'setup.exe' to the record for Uninstall in C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield Installation Information\{some registry key}

It has been a while but I'm pretty sure I had this customized to my installer exe name in the previous IS version. But as it has been years I set this up I cannot remember the details.

Can anyone point me to where I can change the filename in the above folder from 'setup.exe' to 'customsetupname.exe'?

I can see that the registry key in .\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ is set to setup.exe as well.

Tia,

Harald

Hi @HaraldS ,

Do you mean passing setup file name by navigating to Releases->Product Configuration-><Release name>->Setup File Name?

Refer the snap below:

maybe it is too long that I worked for IS, sorry.
I don't have product configration.
My release is set up as cd-rom release and that seems not to have that setting?
Feeling a wee bit dumb/rusty, sorry for that

Hi @HaraldS ,

Is that Installscript project?If so can you try setting value from Release->Setup.exe tab ->Single .exe filename ?That would create a setup with the given name.

Check if that could help!!

Thanks,
