    How: Create random folder name in Express 11

    I'm doing a Proof of concept using Installshield Express 11 and one of my requirements is that the installer should be creating a directory with a randomly generated folder name.

    What is the recommended method for doing this? I thought that maybe I could create a global variable somewhere and then set it's value to a randomly generated GUID in a vbscript file during the install; then reference it in the directory structure under (2) Files -> Desitnation computer's folders.

    I can't see how I can put this together though, am I approaching this in the wrong way?

    Thanks

    Brett
