It is strongly recommended that you provide the company name, product name, and product version. Providing this information enables the use of Windows Forms features such as Application::UserAppDataPath that make it easier to write applications that comply with the "Certified for Windows" program. For more information about the Certified for Windows program, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/certification.
