Hi Guys,

As always this forum is the ultimate for me, I tried wht ever I thought of would resolve the issue but all in vain...... so here are the steps I followed to repackage the app.

first of all Iam using Wise repackage studio.

1. I took the first snapshot
2. execute the exe
3. part of the application I have to manually add a .dll file into C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\My Documents\NetManage\Rumba\Java\bin\nativeprint\filename.dll
4. which i did after executing the file
5. took the second snapshot. and did finish to create a .wsi
NOW HERE IS TROUBLE PART

when I opened the .wsi for editing the files and registires...
the file which I copied to the above location is showing into the following location of the destination computer...

C:\Windows\profiles\default user\ My Documents\NetManage\Rumba\Java\bin\nativeprint\filename.dll


now my question is how should I get it right by placing the .dll file into the right location.. which I don't see any option into the destination folder.

Please help

Thanks

Dean, I don't believe that this is a 'CurrentUser' issue per se, rather it is the old WPS issue with not correctly resolving the profile folders. This got to be such a pain at my current client that we copied a bunch of Custom Actions from an InstallShield-authored MSI into our 'Windows Application' template.

I think I am unable to make you guys understand my problem here.. so let me try once again in more details.

The steps I followed to repackage the app.

first of all Iam using Wise repackage studio.

1. I took the first snapshot
2. execute the exe
3. part of the application I have to manually add a .dll file into C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\My Documents\NetManage\Rumba\Java\bin\nativeprint\filename.dll
4. which i did after executing the .exe
5. took the second snapshot. and did finish to create a .wsi
NOW HERE IS TROUBLE PART

when I opened the .wsi for editing the files and registires...
the file which I copied to the above location is showing into the following location of the destination computer...

C:\Windows\profiles\default user\ My Documents\NetManage\Rumba\Java\bin\nativeprint\filename.dll


now my question is how should I get it right by placing the .dll file onto following location in my destination computer
C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\My Documents\NetManage\Rumba\Java\bin\nativeprint\filename.dll

instead of this location
C:\Windows\profiles\default user\ My Documents\NetManage\Rumba\Java\bin\nativeprint\filename.dll

NOTE: When I open the .wsi for editing and I went to the file componet into the installation expert.. the file structure of the destination computer is not showing the
C:\Document and Settings\Default User\My document..............


I hope this will clearify the situation wht exactly I want.

Please reply.

Thanks

Dev,

The "Default User" folder isn't usually used by applications.
Isn't it so that the file is also located under the installer's profile under "\My Documents\NetManage\Rumba\Java\bin\nativeprint\"?

You are right but application is designed in that way I have to have a file under
C:\document and settings\default user\My Documents\Net Manager\Rumba\Java\bin\nativeprint\"file.dll"

please guide through the step to achive this.

Thanks

Do you really mean that you see "C:\Windows\profiles\default user\ My Documents\NetManage\Rumba\Java\bin\nativeprint\filename.dll"?

When you open the project file (.wsi) the folder structure should look like "Windows\profiles\default user\ My Documents\NetManage\Rumba\Java\bin\nativeprint" meaning without the "C:\" root.
This folder structure "view" is as it will look like.
Wasn't the file installed to the correct folder path while installing the msi?

I think I get it...

I *think* what you mean is, when you view your project, you cannot see the folder 'C:\Documents and Settings\etc, etc' at all.

That is by design. Wise defaults to showing the normal user profile as being beneath 'C:\Windows\Profiles' and the All Users profile as being beneath 'C:\Windows\Profiles\All Users'.

further from that when you install it these folders get dynamically resolved during installation, as such they end up in the right place even though Wise shows it incorrectly.

in a verbose log you should be able to see the folders getting resolved around costing time (search for shell in the log and you should find it showing the correct values)
