Description bukh 2008-09-24 14:47:09 UTC
After installation:
WIN XP: "Control panel"->"Add or Remove Programs"
"Support Info" is available for SDK and JRE and there isn't available for NetBeans.

WIN VISTA: "Control panel"->"Programs and Features"
Publisher is presented as table column. "Sun Microsystems, Inc." is presented as Publisher for SDK and JRE and there
isn't any Publisher for NetBeans.

Right, we don`t have it now.

And, btw, the same applies for GlassFish v2, v3 and Tomcat that we install.

Note for future (for NetBeans):

This was partially addressed some time ago. On 7.4 FCS (GA), while "" is reported from Windows Control Panel and "" from the Help->About dialog in Netbeans, the Windows (pre-) installer instead reports "Oracle America, Inc." as the publisher. 

Glassfish and Tomcat are not listed with the proper publisher information in Windows Control Panel, note that their installation is managed by the Netbeans installer. Perhaps "installed by Netbeans" or some similar verbiage should be shown instead of "(blank)".
