    I have made an app in applescript with xcode and interface builder.

    In my Application, if I go to the toolbar at the top and click on my applications name, then "About MyApplication" I get a small window where it says "MyApplication_____Mycompany". I would like to know how to edit this info?

    My environment may be different but here is what I was able to do to change my current settings for a project.

    For the product name;
    select menu item Project
    choose Edit Active Target "<current product name here>"
    click the Build tab
    under 'Packaging' group
    Double click the value for 'Product Name' to change it

    For the company name, in you project window;
    select the Files tab
    expand the Resources folder
    expand the InfoPlist.strings folder
    double click English (or your language file) to change the copyright string

    See XCode Quick Tips 006 at Mac Developer Network for a more permanent company name solution.
