View Full Version : installshield created unwanted directory

12-14-2003, 01:29 AM
During the install I specified the directory say "C:\TEST\MyApp"
as the target diretory and everything is installed there but somehow at the end the installshield created a directory "C:\Program Files\MyApp" with nothing under it.
Anyone knows the reason ?

Hi Sonu,

Thanks for the reply.

Actually during the installation the user has a choice to specify
which directory to install MyApp. My installation will overwrite
the INSTALLDIR with new value if the user chose a different
path. Otherwise, the default destination folder is:
"C:\Program Files\MyApp".
When user chose different path, say "C:\TEST\MyApp" everything
is installed under C:\TEST\MyApp but at the every end the installshield just created an empty directory, that is:
C:\Program Files\MyApp

Note: My installation is calling four functions. I know for sure
that these 4 functions does not create this extra empty directory
