AdminStudio 10 / InstallShield 2011

I've used the property ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT to hide applications from add/rem programs, but what I seem to have discovered is that once it is declared (MSI or MST) it always seems to apply 1 regardless if I enter 0. If I set systemcomponent = 0 in the registry (or leave it out all together) it unhides/makes it visible. Setting it to 1 hides.

Is this a bug or is this the expected behaviour of the ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT proptery?

I think this is a property (like LIMITUI) where, once it exists, the value doesn't matter it just takes effect

I tried to hide thr ARP entry using the following command line and it worked :

msiexec /i "app.msi" ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT=1 TRANSFORMS="app.mst"
