Changes in the description settings under project settings are not applied to the packaged version of the project. 


Tested in: 4.22.3 CL#7053642, 4.24 CL#10091930   4.25CL#10183780

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Create a blueprint Third person template project
  2. Open Project Settings > Description 
  3. Change: Description, Project Name, Project Version and Display Name to anything other than the default values
  4. Package the project for windows
  5. Right click on the .exe for the newly created packaged launcher for the game and open properties. 
  6. Run the packaged game 
  7. Open task manager and find the packaged game in "Processes" tab

Results: The fields that were changed under "Description" in project settings are not applied to the packaged product. the "Display Name" section is displayed in the Task Manager, however, it is under the default "UE4Game" 


Expected: The altered fields to contain the same information after packaging the project
