I have a Setup project for a VB windows app.   How/where do I change the title, version number, etc, that is shown in the little setup dialog?  See isetup dialog,mage.

With the setup project selected:Capture.JPGYou should see properties which will include: ProductName, Title and Version:Capture.JPGWhich produces the following setup screens:Capture.JPGCapture.JPGAnd the following in 'Apps and Features':Capture.JPG

You do not want the Project Property Pages, you want the project property grid.  If you just select the project (don't right-click or do anything else, just click on it once) and press F4, Visual Studio will do one of two things:

A.  Highlight the property grid
B.  Open and highlight the property grid

Since the windows can be docked and undocked it could potentially be anywhere on your screen(s).  

The key is to look for a highlighted window/control that looks like what I took a snippet of.
