Can anybody tell me How to Add ARP properties in .iss file ?

Normally you can't. The .iss file is there to either record your responses (using setup.exe /r for example) or provide default responses to the various dialogs the vendor has chosen to provide during a silent installation when invoking their installation executable with the /s {silent} switch

IMHO it's unusual for a vendor to provide a dialog which directly influences the Add/Remove Programs entry.

However If the .iss file you mention is a silent response file to an InstallShield setup executable which drives an underlying MSI then you can usually pass public properties (such as the ARP properties) via the /v switch, for example

setup.exe /v"ARPNOREMOVE=1" /s /f1"<path to your .iss file>"

{Note, no spaces between the /v" and the property you wish to set}

There are numerous threads in this forum on how to determine whether a vendor setup executable actually contains an underlying MSI.
