I captured the desktop client installation of an application that is installed to and runs from a network shared drive. During the setup routine, I input the path to the network location of the installed application, as requested. When I run my compiled .msi, I receive the subject error message. In Wise's Setup Editor, I viewed the "Directory" Table and saw the following:

Directory = appserv01 (server name of the installed application)
Directory_Parent = INSTALLDIR2 (in RED)
DefaultDir = APPSER~1|appserv01
Full Directory = appserv01

Does anyone know why the Directory_Parent value is red and how I can resolve this issue?

Directory_Parent = INSTALLDIR2 (in RED)
there is your problem
change dir_parent value to INSTALLDIR or TARGETDIR

if during installation you want to redirect installdir from say c:\program files to a network share then you will need to use a set directory custom action

Changed dir_parent value to INSTALLDIR. Works like a charm. Thanks a lot.
