I have created a asp.net web setup installer project to install ASP.net web application and want to change the publisher name in setup.exe file.  I looked at the property window but couldn't find an option to change the publisher name.

I need to update the publisher from "Unknown" to my company name.

I already provided the "Manufacturer"  but when running the setup.exe file, it has a "unknown" publisher.

Do I need to get a certificate from Verisign to make my company name appear.

Yes, Publisher in UAC prompt is indeed based on trust. Your options:

1. create self-signed certificate, give it to your users, and instruct them to add it to the trusted authority store

2. explain to them that the installation is "unknown" only to Microsoft, but for them it's "known" because they just acquired it from you

3. acquire code-signing certificate from public authority - not necessarily from Verisign. For example, Comodo for $70 at the time of this post. Has to be authority included in the set distributed by Microsoft, http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/search.aspx?q=root%20certificate%20update
