Doesn't the name of the .exe file derive from the name of the application project? Couldn't you just change the name of the project?

Otherwise, if you are talking about creating a setup project, then you can certainly change installation properties. In the Solution explorer, select your deployment project. IN the main menu, from memory, go to View->Tools and this will present a list of things to choose from such as, Registry, Dialog, File System, etc... If it is somewhere else in the menu, just have a look around for it.

You could also open the configuration file under the deployment project in the solution explorer. If you double-click on it, it should open a file where you can set different names. Hope that helps!

Thanks for your reply,

I have set the properties in the setup project for the Author name

It is the only place I can find this option, however when the exe is created this info is not seen when checking the propertieds of the exe

So what I am looking for is why, if I have set this, is there another place & is there an option in the build process that transfers this info to the exe?

the answer is in the editing of assembly.vb

When I mentioned configuration file, that's exactly what I meant, the assembly.vb file in your deployment project. But that's cool that you found it yourself. Cheers!
