I've succesfully implemented an active setup component into a package and it is working fine.

My question is, could someone tell me how to customize the message that is displayed when it is running during login.

The message that is currently displayed is "Setting up personalized settings for" followed by the command line that is specified in StubPath (msiexec.exe /fup {prodcode} )

What I would like is for the message to display "Setting up personalized settings for" followed by the name of the software (which would be a lot more informative to the user).

Is there any way I can change this?

I believe if you have a value set in the (Default) registry key, it will display that string rather than the stubpath string. I could be way off, but that's how I recall it working!

There is a subkey that is either modified or created (we automatically create it in our packages) called ComponentID that holds the information you are wanting to be displayed.

I just grabbed an entry from my own box that had a package installed with this in there:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{2A202491-F00D-11cf-87CC-0020AFEECF20}]
@="Macromedia Shockwave Director 10.1"

Since this was around in our scripts before I ever existed in this position on our team, I'm not sure exactly where it came from

Thanks everyone for the responses.

I added a (Default) reg key with the value required and it worked a treat.
