First, could you explain why do you think your product needs installation?
If it needs it, the answer depends on what installation toolset you are using.

Ok. Using Visual Studio 2012, I was created one windows form application. And Using InstallShield I created It's Setup file. Now While Installing This Setup in Windows 7 PC, It display:

The Publisher could not be verified. Are you Sure want to run this application?

Name : c:\User\Downloads\setup.exe
Publisher : Unknown Publisher.
Type : Application
From : c:\User\Downloads\setup.exe

Now, I want to change above things (Name :
Publisher : Word Publishers).
How can I do it????

InstallShield is quite bad and is not worth using. And VS "Setup" project template is also bad; Microsoft phased it out and discontinued, so it should not be used; it won't be supported. Both are not legitimate type of product; they are not compliant with MSBuild standard.

In contrast, WiX toolself perfectly satisfy all those criteria. With WiX, your problem is not a problem at all.
