Mention the PI ICU in the names of PI Generic Names DLL and PI Spt DLL in Programs And Features
Both PI Generic Names DLL and PI Spt DLL are part of the PI Interface Configuration Utility, but this is not obvious from their names. This can cause confusion or waste time when an administrator decides to clean up or replace some PI programs but can't figure out exactly which PI programs need those DLLs.
In Control Panel → Programs And Features, these DLLs appear as:
• PI Generic Names DLL (PIGenericNames)
• PI Spt DLL (PISpt)
I suggest changing these names to something like:
• PI Interface Configuration Utility Prerequisite: PI Generic Names DLL (PIGenericNames)
• PI Interface Configuration Utility Prerequisite: PI Spt DLL (PISpt)
With names like these, the association of the DLLs with the PI Interface Configuration Utility is clear, and the DLLs will appear next to the PI Interface Configuration Utility when the programs are sorted in alphabetical order.
