I guess the best way to describe it would be to put it here for you to see for yourself...

Move C:\Program Files\DIPPR801\Documentation\Policies and Procedures 2011.doc to the S:\ drive.

(S: Drive being a network drive)

Wise 8

Any help would be appreciated...

Sorry Foleymon, I wasn't particularly descriptive...I assumed the title would explain it...Let me explain...

The install places that document in the specified folder locally "C:\Prog files\Blah blah"...They want the doc to install it on the S:\(network drive) drive when the application is being installed...

I'm guessing that your package is going to be deployed by some mechanism such as SCCM/SMS, Altiris or whatever, meaning that it'll be driven by the local System account which, as we know, has no network access. I'll also guess that the S: drive is unique to each user. In other words, you need this done per-user. So your choice is either a user-level feature in the MSI, triggered by an adevrtised entry-point, such as a shortcut, or Active Setup. In either case, you're going to need a script/CMD file.

Thanks for your response, VBS...

By CMD are you referring to the 'subst' command done via a Batch file of some sorts?

But the issue is, that this doc is the only thing that needs to be moved...Nothing else...

"move" is a bit misleading, Would "copy" satisfy your requirement? Active setup is well documented here, just search for it. I prefer using the duplicate file method as explained here, it is a bit complicated, and I had to read and digest it 10+ times before I got it right. But when you see it work like a charm it´s worth it.
