Windows 7: Change verbiage on Installer's Select Installation Folder

Change verbiage on Installer's Select Installation Folder

Greetings,

Please pardon me if this is not the right forum to which to post this question.

I am working with a Win app in Visual Studio 2010.

There is the project for the app and a project for the installer in this solution.

I wanted to know if it is possible to change the verbiage on the installer's Select Installation Folder form and if it is possible to disable the browse button on this form.

When right-clicking on the installer project, going to View and clicking User Interface, I see when I click Welcome that there is a property WelcomeText, but when I click on Installation Folder there are only the properties for the BannerBitmap and InstallAllUsersVisible.

We want if possible to disable the browse button and remove or change the text "To install in this folder, click Next. To install to a different folder, enter it below or click Browse."

If I cannot disable the browse button and/or change the verbiage "To install in this folder, click Next. To install to a different folder, enter it below or click Browse.", then I am wondering if it is possible somehow to change the sentence above that reads "The installer will install [OurProjectName] to the following folder."

Basically, I changed for the installer the DefaultLocation property because we want the app to install to C:\FolderWithOurProjectName rather than to C:\Program Files\Et Cetera or C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\Et Cetera. I changed the DefaultLocation property from the value [ProgramFilesFolder][Manufacturer]\[ProductName] to the new value [WindowsVolume]\[ProductName].

So if possible on the installer's Select Installation Folder form, we want to disable the browse button to now allow the installation to go to any other path than the [WindowsVolume]\[ProductName] and change the verbiage about installing to a different folder. If this is not possible, we at least want on this Select Installation Folder form to ask the user to refrain from changing the default path of the installation.

Someone at work suggested looking into a manifest file. I see that the manifest file can change the Windows User Account Control level but I do not see how the manifest file has anything to do with the verbiage and browse button on the installer.

Does anybody know if what we want is possible? If so, do you have any suggestions on how to accomplish this or links to web pages that might help us?

I thank you in advance for your consideration.
