Changing Windows Agent add/remove text and icons

Question:


We have successfully customized our Windows Agent icons in the system tray. Is there also any way we can re-brand the Agent-related name & icon in Add/Remove programs?

 

Answer:

These elements can be changed via the following registry keys for v6-based and above installed Windows Agents but first:

  • Changing the Display name of the Windows Agent in Add/Remove Program

    • For K2 v6-installed Agents

      • On x86 32-bit Machines

        [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\KA<14 Random Generated digits>]

      • On x64 64-bit Machines

        [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\KA<14 Random Generated digits>]

        "DisplayName"="Kaseya Agent" <---- Change this "Kaseya Agent" to your desired text here.

  • Changing the Display icon of the Windows Agent in Add/Remove Program

    • For K2 v6-installed Agents

      • On x86 32-bit Machines

        [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\KA<14 Random Generated digits>]

      • On x64 64-bit Machines

        [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\KA<14 Random Generated digits>]
      • 1. Create up to a 48 x 48 desired .ico file.
        2. Place this icon file into an appropriate & desired directory on the managed machine (ie.: C:\kworking\icon.ico).
        3. In RegEdit, navigate to the hive path specified above, and create a new String Value here called "DisplayIcon" if not already present.
        4. For this string's data field, enter the full path for this icon file (ie.: C:\kworking\icon.ico).
