My app is using a bin directory and stores relevant dll that it
requires. I need to register this bin directory in the
LocalMachine\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppPaths key along with
the app exe path. How do I do this with InstallShield Express 2.0

I am not exactly sure what you are trying to do. We do provide the
functionality of writing to the registry with Express. If this doesn't
provide the functionality you need then you will have to write an extension
and call it right before the Setup Complete dialog.

I did figure it out..Express does provide the ability to write to the
registry. You do have to modify the value to accept the variable
<INSTALL_DIR> as oppposed to putting in an absolute value. Express did
however, behave strangely as it then assign another value there (i think
it was Program Files\exepath) but during installation it did put in the
correct install value.
