Cannot see My Application Entry having name as "xxxx Skype for Business" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are using my Application name as "xxxx for Skype for Business" and after the install of the application we cannot see the entry in Add Remove programs. Is there any limitation with the Name??

    Note: I cannot see name only in a freshly installed Win 10 OS. later if i try manually and Install i can see the name in Add Remove Programs. 

    From one of the post

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/247515/program-is-not-listed-in-add-remove-programs-after-installation

    i saw the length of the Displayname should not be more than 32char. and my application is having ~50char. is that causing the problem??

    Also we didn't mention it as ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT=1 in the installshield.

    Can you please help on this and give some pointers if i am missing anything?

  • Hi Ravi,

    Based on my research ,it is related to your length of the Displayname on the registry key Name, you could try to rename it,let the Displayname less than 32 characters and make a test.

    If the program “ xxxx Skype for Business” was developed by your programer ,you could open a thread on the following link,our forum focus on the deploy the skype for business on-premise server.

    Thanks for your understanding.

  • Hi Ravi Raj Nukala ,

    You mentioned that you installed the application manually ,you could see the name in add remove programs ,you install the app by the SCM or GPO? Or other ways of batch installation.

  • Hi Leon Lu,

    We do it by SCM and run the scripts that will install all the required OS and Applications which will read from the Configuration Files.

    If i uninstall and install it again i couldnt see the issue anymore.

    Thank you for you reply...

    Please help!!
