You can configure those keys using the tags <windowsSoftwareRegistryPrefix> and <windowsARPRegistryPrefix>:

  • Add Remove Program Menu:

    The key will be created under: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\${project.windowsARPRegistryPrefix} The default value for <windowsARPRegistryPrefix> is "${project.fullName} ${project.version}"

  • Software key:

    The key will be created under: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\${project.windowsSoftwareRegistryPrefix} The default value for <windowsSoftwareRegistryPrefix> is "${project.vendor}\${project.fullName}"

For example, if you want your ARP Menu key to be named "My ARP key" and your your software key to be "My Company\My product Version 4\Component A" you just have to use the below:

<project>
    ...
    <windowsARPRegistryPrefix>My ARP key</windowsARPRegistryPrefix>
    <windowsSoftwareRegistryPrefix>My Company\My product Version 4\Component A</windowsSoftwareRegistryPrefix>
    ...
</project>
