Are you installing per user?
If you want the user files located in all users profile then why not set the ALLUSERS property to 1 (per machine installation)?

Did you repackage this or is it a vendor MSI?
Is your directory using the AppDataFolder or the CommonAppDataFolder folder as parent directory?
Make sure no custom action is setting the profile path. Logging the installation should give you some information about what CA if any changes the path.

If u predeploy the app to alluserprofile it will be copied to the userprofile as soon as they log in becouse a new user use the alluser profile to build up.
Whats the problem to have the app in there user profile and in alluser??

Hi Kalle,
your post is definitely wrong. A new user profile is not built from the "All Users" profile, but from "Default User" profile. There is no such thing, as the "All Users" profile at all!
However, the "All Users" folder in the profile folder takes files and settings which belong to all users on a machine. If there are files and/or settings which belong to the "Users Profile" the author of a setup package has to take special considarations to get this stuff into each profile. There a two main ways to this: MSI self healing or Active Setup.
But if an app is installing stuff to the users profile without awareness of the rules, its mostlikely working in the profile (with admin rights), which the app was installed, but in every other profile, MSI self healing is kicking in but can't succeed because of the lack of the necessary rights to do it.
AngelD has qestioned cygan exactly about the behaviour the app does around this.
Regards, Nick

Did you try to create a public property ALLUSERS with value of 1 ?
