This setting has been deprecated. The Manufacturer name displayed in the Get Help app is now based on your System Manufacturer value defined in System Information (msinfo32.exe), unless you provide a SupportProvider parameter as part of your OEMInformation. When SupportProvider is provided, it will override the System Manufacturer name. This enables you to differentiate the name of your support app or website from the name of your brand if desired (i.e. "Contact Contoso Support" vs "Contact Contoso"). For this release, if SupportProvider is not present but the deprecated value Manufacturer is, it will still be used to support upgrade scenarios.

Manufacturer specifies the name of the manufacturer.
