I am working on a script to install additional files for use by a currently resident application. I need to write the user selected destination directory to the registry, so that the current app will know where these files are. I attempted to pass that value to the registry via the Express Directory Specifier <INSTALLDIR>, what I got was a 16-bit file path as shown below.

C:\PROGRA~1\AFS

What I need is the full 32-bit file path as displayed in the dialogs.

Is there anyway to write a full 32-bit path to the registry using Install Shield Express 2.12.

Thanks in advance.
