Hi,
I have a small problem with Environment Variables when making MSI-packages. The problem is that they all end with a "\", is there any way of removing the "\" in a simple way because some the programs doesnt like the paths ending with "\".

Edit: forgot to mention that I use Wise Package Studio.

Anha,

I think you can safely remove that "\". It will have the same effect...

Ah,

I might have been a bit unclear. I get "\" at the end when I use [INSTALLDIR] or anyother variable that represents a path. Its nothing that I add when I set them. From what I see it happens automaticly.

Hi anha,

Wise and Installshield generates it automatically as you have said when defining it for [INSTALLDIR]. The only way to get what you want is to use [ProgramFilesFolder] string then append your working directory here. For example:

[ProgramFilesFolder]Your Folder\anha >> This could be your INSTALLDIR... what do you think? NOw, the problem here is if you ever have a standards in your team to always use [INSTALLDIR], you should probably include it in your documentation explaining why you did that.

Check it out.[;)]
