Hello All,
I have VS2008 and when publishing my applications it gives the default Publisher Name as my full name.  This can be undesirable as you may expect with a mass of people seeing the specific creator of a company wide project.   How do I change this from my name to say "Arizona Center Productions"?  

To clarify:  Start>All Programs> My Name> EXE
I want on all to be
                  Start>All Programs>Arizona Center Productions>EXE

Hi NinjaVsPirates,
It's pulling this value out of the windows registry. If you open the registry editor (Start Menu->Run->regedt.exe) and navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
Look for the key RegisteredOrganization and change the value to the name of your organization.
That should do it!
Regards,
carazuul

To change the publish settings:
With a project selected in Solution Explorer, on the Project menu, click Properties.

Click the Publish tab.

Click the Options button to open the Publish Options dialog box.

If you are using Visual Studio 2008 SP1, click Description.

In the Publish Options dialog box, Fill in "Publisher Name" ... then click OK.

Hi NinjaVsPirates,
It's likely then that the entry in the registry is blank. However, changing this value will make the default publish value what you set it to.
