Solution 1

Yes, it is possible.
In Media/Releases section choose your production configuration, then find "Setup File Name" key. The output file will have the name you entered for all your releases.

You also can edit it manually in ISProductConfigurationProperty table, it might have something like this:
ISProductionConfiguration_     Property       Value
YourConfigurationSectionName   SetupFileName  your_setup_file_name

Installshield with VS 2015

Expand your Project, In Project expand Prepare for Releases, you will see an option Releases, Double click above option, new window will opened, in left pane click on Express, In right pane under General tab you will see Setup File Name, change this and you are done.

Incorrect, CHill60 - Aniket is showing how to perform this action on the later releases of Visual Studio, and Aniket's answer is the one I actually needed.
