Hi there,

I have the following issue. When the particular application is installed as administrator, it will create the following path:

C:\Document and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\CNS\SMTPitPro\4.0\SmtPit Pro Prefs
where SMTPit Pro Prefs is the file containing all registration information with registry keys etc.

The issue i am having is the following:

I need to have MSI drop the SMTPit Pro Prefs files into the folder specified above but where do i drop it? Keep in mind when deploying the MSI either through the marimba or SMS the "Local Settings" folder does not exist. How do i bypass that, is there any other way?

What would be corresponding folder? In MSI i tried to drop that file into :

Windows\Profiles\All Users\Application Data\CNS\SMTPit Pro\4.0\ but it does not work.

Try using the ALLUSERS=1 in the install command line.
Also you set allusers in the msi tables
I think there are two or three diffrent ALLUSERS that you can find.
Look at the file table and change the target dir.
Or simply create a post script that runs after the install to change the file location.

Try searching for resiliency/repair/self-heal or "Active Setup".

the component which contains the files that need to be deployed need an HKCU in them which is set as the keypath.

the search button is just at the top of the page.
