When signing, using the /d option to provide a description can prevent this  e.g. sign /d "Myapp.msi" myapp.msi (as well as the existing parameters you may have used)

Subject: [Ext] [wix-users] auto-build path shown in "User Account Control" upon add or remove

When I install or uninstall, I am prompted for permission to modify the system.
This dialog shows the full path on my build machine.

Dialog Title: "User Account Control"

Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?

Can anyone tell me how to avoid the full path on the build machine showing up on client computers?

Is this a product of signing, if anyone has done that with their msi?
