Setting Author & Manufacturer for properties in exe

I have an app that I have set the Author & Manufacturer, however when the project is built this information does not appear on the properties of the generated exe

Can somebody enlighten me on this & other exe proprties that can be set & why my app does not convey this info to the exe

Thanks in Advance for any suggestions

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!
