You won't be able to decompile it. You may be able to use a Hex editor to locate and change the caption inside the .exe file. I use WinHex:

Try Editing the *.LST file present in the same location as that of Setup.exe.
I intended to modify the Installation Dir path and did the same by changing the path in the Setup.LST file.
