I am using ISX v. 1.11 with Delphi 3.01 CSS. In my install, I select
Typical, Compact, & Custom Install Types, and full BDE install. I have
three components (Application Files, Data FIles, and BDE Files. The
[Data Files] component is targeted to its own [Data Files] destination.
The BDE gets installed in my install directory, NOT "Borland Common
Files\BDE". Is there any way to prompt the user for separate targets for
Program Files, Data Files, and BDE files?. The dialogs only have a
single target directory, which seems to apply to all components.

No, you cannot. However you can hardcode it which is probably not what you
want. InstallShield5 however has this ability.
