Hi all,

Say I want to install something to the directory C:\pony but the folder 'pony' does not exist, how can I get InstallShield to inform the user that the folder 'pony' does not exist and ask the user if he or she wants to create the directory.

What happens now is the directory is automatically created.

thanks

I suspect you'll need to upgrade to a more powerful version of InstallShield to accomplish that. To my knowledge, Express 2008 doesn't give you scripting capability.
