    You can name the setup.exe that you build to anything you want.
    "to protect against..." What?

    that's not possible -- an administrator can rename just about any file that is not in use...
    The closest you can come is to examine _SourceFilename and make sure it's named whatever you want, if not show a dialog/page "Sorry; file renamed, can't execute" and exit.

    hmm,
    my english is not so good but if I understood you correctly then you can arrange for a check to the name in the setup! right?

    If so, then the question arises just how I should proceed because it has the xxx.exe is not running when they were renamed yyy.exe is!

    Perhaps there's an example for me?

    Yes. Use _SourceFilename

    I think it's the other way around -- you need to provide us a small sample project to illustrate / replicate your issue.
