Valve Steam Client - Alter Product Name (Adjust to Windows Start Menu)


  • Community Moderator

    Steam is detected correctly on my system, but the displayed product name should be altered.
    In the application the displayed product name is Steam Client.
    In VulnDetect the displayed product name is Valve Steam Client.
    So you should show the same product name that is shown in the app.

    Here is a screen shot of the Help -> About window.

    In the topic Display Product Name in Unique way I suggested to remove the vendor from the product name so the product is displayed is the same way like it is displayed in the Windows 10 Start menu.

    And here Steam is displayed without the vendor name:

    So I suggest we leave this topic opened until you show the column "Vendor" also for Personal Users.

    While Steam seems to be more prevalent than Origin, I still hold the same opinion as I posted in my response to your post about Origin.

    Please don't forget this very old detection issue!
