Re: Add version to uninstaller string

I'm not sure how WiX is generating all this but only the ProductCode GUID
and UpgradeCode GUID matter for preventing multiple installs. As long as
those are the same, you can change the ProductName as much as you want. If
the WiX is somehow basing the ProductCode on the ProductName, then changing
it would be an issue. I make installers at work regluarly with the point
version # in the ProductName mainly because people are lazy or don't know
about clicking "support information".
