Our QA guys are asking that we change the INSTALLDIR from [ProgramFiles]Vendor to [ProgramFiles]Vendor\AppName.

Before making the change the MSI installs in the proper directory C:\Program Files\Vendor\AppName

But when we change the INSTALLDIR as requested the MSI installs in an incorrect directory C:\Program Files\Vendor\AppName\AppName

I have been struggling with this all week. Anyone have any ideas? I'm using AdminStudio 5.5.

What is the value of INSTALLDIR before and after you change it?

As an example, the INSTALLDIR value before any changes that I make would be: [ProgramFiles]Microsoft and the INSTALLDIR value after my change is [ProgramFiles]Microsoft\Access97

This appears fine, but what actually happens is that the MSI then installs under C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Access97\Access97. Before I make that change the MSI installs fine under Files\Microsoft\Access97.

Well, I convinced our QA guys to ignore this. They have been getting ridiculous lately. :)
