I have a windows setup project that installs a service. All works well except for one thing: The default directory offered to the user during install is of the form "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\ProgramName". I am trying to modify this so that instead of "Microsoft" we would have our company's name.
I found the application folder property of the setup project, and it has a DefaultLocation property of "[ProgramFilesFolder][Manufacturer][ProductName]". So, it looks like all I need to do is set the "Manufacturer" property and I'll be all set. However, I can not find a way to set this property! I had hoped it would take it from the company name in the AssemblyInfo of the primary output project, but it did not.
I could remove "[Manufacturer]" from the DefaultLocation and replace it with our literal company name, but that seems like a hack.
How do I set the Manufacturer name?
Note that I am not using a full-blown WiX project. I have simply added a windows setup project to my solution.
Thanks in advance for any help.
