Link to information about configuring Software Explorer on Windows Vista

I noticed an interesting post on the Windows Installer team blog that I wanted to draw some more attention to.  The post, located at, explains how to customize the view presented by Software Explorer (the Windows Vista replacement for the Add/Remove Programs control panel applet).  It also lists Windows Installer properties that can be used to configure what information appears in Software Explorer when installing an MSI-based application.

This information is useful if you are creating an MSI-based setup and want to better understand what happens behind the scenes when Software Explorer displays application information.  I encourage you to check out the post to learn more about Software Explorer and how MSIs can be configured for various display options available in Software Explorer.
