When we are installing CS3 programs with the silent method that Adobe provides, I have discoverd a problem. I can't figure out how to use the variable %ProgramFilesFolder% in the xml files?

Because we have both swedish and english versions of Windows, and i don't whant to create different packages for the different versions. English XP uses \Program Files\ and swedish uses \Program\ for default program folder.

I guess you can create a installtion script but it would be better if I can manage without it.

How have you solved this?

Hello Johan,

Haven't used this myself, but could

CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES be the answer ?

Refer to
