Hi,

my application requires several empty folders to be present when running. With IS 5.x it worked fine to create a folder without associating a program group with it.

I tried the same in 10.5 (Application Data -> Files and folders).In Organization -> Setup Types these folders are selected for complete installation. However, the empty folders are not created by installation process.

Any ideas?

Maybe you can use the InstallShield CreateDir() function to create the empty folders.

This will work, of course. However, its quite uncomfortable to create more than 10 folders like that. And this canĀ“t be the best practice.

However, as a workaround this will do..

Thanks
