Working on my first steps with Wise package studio V7.x.
I ran into a problem repackaging Scientifice Workplace. Using the Install Capture . .
The MSI should install itself to "C:\SWP55" wich is the vendor default.
Sometimes it is installing itself on "D:\SWP55".
I know I should be able to control this behavior through the variable "INSTALLDIR" or even better "ROOTDRIVE".

Now the newby thing . . .
Can anyone tell me where to chance the contents for this variable?
I know I learned it but . . . .

+++++++++
In the meantime I found the location where it should be .
installer editor --> Setup editor --> Tables -> Property . .
but there is no vaiable "ROOTDRIVE", can i just add it?

Henk,

Open your package in Wise and go into the 'Setup Editor' (bottom of screen on left), then go into the 'Tables' tab.
Find the 'Property' table and select it. One the right hand pane look for 'ROOTDRIVE'.

If it isn't there insert a row, add 'ROOTDRIVE' (note capitals as it's a public property) with a value of 'C:\'..

Compile and test. Without that property the software will install on the drive with the most free space.

Hope this helps,
