I want to add files in %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data, for customizing office 2007 application. I am trieng to do it, through OCT,

but I am not able to see [LocalAppdataFolder] as predefined property, so not able to add files.

How can I achive it? I can do it through some custom actions, but can I do it in Office Customization tool?

Run the OCT - setup.exe /admin

Navigate to Additional Content -> Add files.

Choose your files then use [PersonalFolder]\Local Settings\Application Data as your destination path.

I think that will do it.

[PersonalFolder] means "C:\Documents and Settings\current user\My Documents"...

I tried but it is installing in "C:\Documents and Settings\current user\My Documents", there are 2 options in front of me.

1) Activesetup

2) Edit msp in installshield. and put that file in required location, but it is not advisable, to edit office 2007 customization msp file.

If there is any other way, please suggest.

When we add any file, we get option, to choose location. Tool shows so many locations in [].
I can not find "LocalAppDataFolder" there, so not able to add file, at that location
