View Full Version : Destination Folder and Creating a folder

10-28-2005, 12:11 PM
We created our application installation using InstallShield Express 11.
I have 2 questions.

1. When installing our application, the Destination folder is always "c:\Program files\MyApplication". We need to install our application in c:\MyApp, not c:\Program files\MyApplication. How can I create our application installation so that the Destination Folder default is c:\MyApp ?

2. If c:\MyApp does not exist, we need our installation to create that folder, how can I do that ?

Thank you very much.

A quick search on set INSTALLDIR at Support (http://support.installshield.com/) found several useful links.
