I think this deserves a documentation page, so I wrote one. Here's the text that will go into the next release. Let me know if this answers your question. If you download the latest 1.8 build, the documentation has some pretty pictures too.
dotNetInstaller supports rewriting file attributes such as binary versions, company name and copyright. These attributes can be seen by hovering over a setup binary or by right-clicking on it and choosing the
Details tab under Properties.
Configuration attributes are editable under the File Attributes section of the Config File in Installer Editor.
Operating System Attributes
The configurable operating system attributes include the following language and code page independent fields.
File's binary version number.
Binary version number of the product with which this file was distributed.
The following attributes are reserved by the Windows shell. Their names are translated and presented in the language of the operating system.
Name of the manufacturer.
You can also define additional attributes with the name of your choosing. These have no special meaning for the operating system and don't appear along the reserved attributes in the properties screens. They are embedded with the executable and may be used
by proprietary software.
