Default Adding My App To Add/Remove Progarms


I am writing a custom installer for my app as the msi builder build into visual studio does not provide functinality I wish to include, so I need to know how i can setup my app to be listed in the Add/Remove Programs dialog and when the user selects change or remove, to run my uninstaller which will handle the rest.

The uninstall key in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ contains information that "Add/Remove programs" collects.

Create a key (unique) and add the strings you can find there yourself by looking with regedit. I can see DisplayName, DisplayVersion, Publisher, UninstallString and two DWORDS; NoModify and NoRepair as the most important ones.
