when the main installer calls the child installer using option: --mode unattended --unattendedmodeui minimal, the child installer runs with a dialog like this: alt text

Can I change the dialog's title to something meanful instead of just setup?

The title of the installer and/or uninstaller can be modified by changing the built-in language strings. For this case it could be as follows:

Installer.Setup.Title=Installation - ${project.fullName} Installer.Uninstall.Title=Uninstallation - ${project.fullName}

Those can simply be put as a custom language inside the project by adding:

<customLanguageFileList> <language> <code>en</code> <file>path/to/custom-en.lng</file> </language> </customLanguageFileList>

This is described in more details in Changing Built-in Installer Text Strings section of InstallBuilder user guide.
