using productName instead of [ProductCode] in uninstall key


by default the installer sets the uninstall registry strings in

Is there a way to have the installer use the productname instead of productcode?


if so, how do I set up my installshield basic msi project file to do that?

While you can change the key in an InstallScript or InstallScript MSI project using the UNINSTALLKEY InstallScript variable, in a Basic MSI project the key is controlled by the engine, and I'm not sure it can be modified.

(Out of curiosity, is there a particular reason you want to change it? The subkey is an implementation detail that users shouldn't explore, and using a GUID instead of words does a better job of avoiding collisions between products, versions, and so forth...)
