I've built and installed the demo installer project, which is distributed with "BitRock InstallBuilder for Windows 8.5.2". As a result, it created the following registry key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Demo Project 1.0]
"DisplayVersion"="1.0"
"Publisher"="Name of your company"
"DisplayName"="Demo Project"
"UrlInfoAbout"=""
"HelpLink"=""
"Comments"=""
"Contact"=""
"UninstallString"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\demo-1.0\\uninstall.exe"
"InstallLocation"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\demo-1.0"
"NoModify"="1"
"NoRepair"="1"
"EstimatedSize"=dword:0000f639
"InstallDate"=dword:5137554d

The values in EstimatedSize and InstallDate are not correct!

EstimatedSize should be the size in KiB InstallDate should be a string of the following format: yyyyMMdd

As a result, when I open "Control PanelUninstall or change a program", the size of the installed demo project is displayed as 61.5 MB, and the size of "BitRock InstallBuilder for Windows" itself is displayed as 50.9 GB (gigabytes!). "Installed On" column is displayed correctly, but every single other program in registry uses yyyyMMdd format, except of your installer.
