I am repackaging a bespoke NT application, which requires me to copy different files to different network locations. (i.e.) I need to copy ABC.dat to \\Server\Folder.

How do I do this in Wise?

Cheers!

You might want to include that folder location as part of your Setup Capture.

Alternatively a custom action using a VBScript that copies the folder should be alright.

Thats cool for one network location, (ie) setting the ROOTDRIVE property to (X:\), but I also want to install a .Dat file to (V:\) and add folders and other config files to the (W:\).

How do you install files to multiple network locations? Do I set properties for each drive needed and make the property the Directory Parent of the Directory that has the File in it?

I just tried that with setting properties etc...and it works nicely.

Thanks to Bernard Gready for that one!

So you were able to copy to multiple network drives with the same MSI? How was that accomplished with properties?

I first needed to install the program files to the X drive, so I set the ROOTDRIVE to X:.

Then created a property called APPSDATA, and set it to W:

Use the DuplicateFile table to copy the config file to the APPSDATA folder on install.
