Having an issue here with the way the support info is being displayed in Add/Remove programs. In the mst I have specified the property values for ARPHELPLINK and ARPNOMODIFY (set to 1). I'm not using the ARPNOREPAIR property (I want the repair button to show up). I would think this would work and display the info I want, but instead the modify option shows up, and my help link does not show up in the support info box and neither does the repair button. I though maybe a CA was changing the values of the properties I set but that's not the case. Where else could this occur? I'm thinking there must be a .dll call or something that's editiing this information, I'm still parsing throught the logfile to figure this out. If anyone has any insight please let me know. Thank you.

Nevermind...a component called ARP_NT_Vista was writing all it's own information to the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Uninstall\{ProductCode} key, ignoring any property that I had set. I just deleted this component then ran the installation again, this time all the properties I had set displayed correctly in the Add/Remove Programs applet. I'm going to add an entry in the Packages KB for Corel Office X3 since they're isn't one in there yet.
