.net – How to deploy a VB.Net 1.1 app with no manufacturer set


I need to deploy this app and currently the installer the path goes something like "C:\Program Files\Manufacturer\App". I just want it to be "C:\Program Files\App" by default.

I know I can change this manufacturer from the properties for the project, but I want it to go away altogether. The setup project won't build with it gone. Any way to get around it?

Best Solution

Assuming a VS Deployment, in your setup project:

  1. Go to the "File System" tab
  2. Select the Application Folder
  3. In the properties pane, change [ProgramFilesFolder][Manufacturer]\[ProductName] to [ProgramFilesFolder]\[ProductName]
