Using a System Search property
The install folder for my application depends on the location of another app (Apache Tomcat); it's installed in a subfolder of Tomcat.
In 'System Search', I look for the path of Tomcat in the registry, then store it in a variable (APACHELOCATION).
My problem comes when I want to use this variable to define the install directory for my app:
I tried modifying [INSTALLDIR] in the 'Product Properties' by using the [APACHELOCATION] variable, but that doesn't seem to work. How do I use this variable to create my install folder path (like so: [APACHELOCATION]\Webapps\Test)
Am I even on the right track here?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
It sounds as if you're on the right track; perhaps see this newsletter tip on the subject (PDF warning): http://www.macrovision.com/webdocume...app_search.pdf.
Worked perfectly! Thanks Robert!
