Hi all,
This is my first post, so I would be grateful if someone can help me.
Im desiging a installscript object.
I have various different files, in different locations that are named the same.
When I build and install the install script project that includes this install script object, I get one of these files copied in to each location i have specified.
All the files are static files added to the Different Components, in the installscript object.
Has any seen this before, or does anyone have a workaround?

Create different components and change the destination wherever you want

Yes i had previously done that.
Even thought the destiantion is diffeerent, but a file with the same name is in each component, only one file will be installted in each location.
You have to diffrentiate each component, by a sub directory within it to eradicate the problem.
