Hello,
I am taking an old .msi installer created with installshield pro and converting it to an .exe installer with developer 7. From my understanding pro used the TARGETDIR as the main install path and developer uses INSTALL DIR. With this project all I am trying to do is change the install path, currently its going to c:\program files\ but I want it to go to another folder off C:\. I have tried changing the path everywhere I could find, but no luck. I have the .msi opened up in the direct edit view. I have a screenshot of the directory table in this view. I am assuming the change must be made here. I appreciate any help, thank you.

You need to find out where each feature is being installed. Then go and change the feature destination inside the directory table.

Sorry just downloaded the bitmap, change the parent of the INSTALLLDIR (OPTICAL TECHNOLOGY).

When INSTALLDIR has a "name" of "." then this means it is just like a shortcut to the parent (OPTICAL).
