I previously posted this in the windows installer group, but this was apparently the wrong place...

I have a problem with Installshield 9 that I think should be simple but for the life of me I can't see how to solve it.

I have an MSI/Installscript project that installs .NET assemblies into the Global Assembly cache, and also files onto the file system.

My problem is in trying to ask the user for the destination path for these files. I can install files into the install folder ok, but other files are to be installed to a different location that must be prompted for from the user.

What I can't work out is how to take the destination path from the user's input and set the destination path within the MSI install.

This seems so simple that I must surely be missing something obvious.

The last version of IS that I used was 6.3, so I'm probably being blinded by the old ways of doing things :)
