When I install my windows installer project using the MSI file, I get the following in my Installed Programs List,

Publisher = Default Company Name
Version = 1.0.0

I want to set the Publisher and Version for my windows installer project in Visual Studio.
It seems to be something very easy, but somehow I am not able to find this.
Could you guide on how to do the same?

Actually I'm not 100% sure whether it's Author or Manufacturer that will become "Publisher". Find out by experiment :-)

I ran the installer and the "Manufacturer" becomes the  "Publisher" in the installed application.
Thanks for your help. :-)
