Hi all,

I am packaging Apple_Quicktime_7.65.17.80 at the moment and I want to install the quicktime.qtp file to the following location C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Application Data\LocalLow\Apple Computer\Quicktime

I amusing Wise Package Studio 7 SP3.
How do I ensure that my file gets installed to this location?

You could use the relevant environment variables. In this case, you'd use [%AppData]LocalLow\Apple Computer\Quicktime

Thanks for the reply,

I'll give it a try but I'm not sure if this will work as the APPDATA environment variable in Windows 7 points to C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming

I'll try it anyway and let you know how i get on.

What authoring tool are you using? The two main players Wise and InstallShield also have built-in properties for handling these "special" folders.

Thanks for the replies.....I was a bit lost when confronted with a german webpage.....don't speak a word.

I'm still a little in the dark however,

How do I use this Custom Action?

I can see it in the Custom Action table as follows.

Action Type Source Target
WiseSetProfilesFolder 1 Callwisepatch SetProfilesFolder

How is it actually used?

I'm using Wise Package Studio 7 SP3 by the way.

I was going down the line of creating an Environment variable called APPDATALOCALLOW and assigning a value of [%USERPROFILE]\AppData\LocalLow.

I was then going to assign this to the component.

I'm not sure if it will work but was going to try it.

You don't need to do anything with the CA, just add the two rows shown to the 'Directory' table, although I suspect (hope, in fact) that the AppData row is already present.You may then have to alter the various Directory_Parent cellls to reflect the path.

Thanks for all your help,
I've managed to get it to work.

There is a Row in the directory table for AppDataFolder, however, this resolves to C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming so can't be used.

Directory Directory_Parent DefaultDir Full Directory
AppDataFolder TARGETDIR APPLIC_1¦Application Data Windows\Profiles\Application Data

I added the rows

Directory Directory_Parent DefaultDir Full Directory
AppData ProfilesFolder AppData Windows\Profiles\AppData
LOCALLOW AppData LocalLow Windows\Profiles\AppData\LocalLow

This has worked.

Thanks for all your help!

Excellent! At the very least you have earned yourself 10 minutes lying in a darkened room, cogitating on the vaguaries of Windows Installer directory resolution. :)
