Hi.

I'm trying to Add a [INSTALLDIR] property in a registry set, but the property will not expand to the real install directory. What am I doing wrong?

The form [PROPERTYNAME] is used only in MSI (including InstallScript MSI) projects; for InstallScript projects, you can often use expressions of the form <TARGETDIR>...

Great.
I haven't learned how to use Installshield help yet...

Hi.
Is it possible to create your own Directory properties like MSI installers.?

I want to extract a path from the registry, and create a new directoryproperty called <MYDIR> in Setup.rul. This property should be inserted as a property in a Registry set...

There's a function called FeatureSetTarget that lets you associate a value with a custom target path...
