Hi, I'm a rather newbie packager and have following (simple?) problem.
A program I'm trying to package creates per user in the Documents and Settings folder a folder and a file that contains the logged in username and AD domain name. For example: when I logon with username koswo, it would create following folder: C:\Documents and Settings\koswo\Local Settings\Application Data\SyncClient\MY-DOMAIN!koswo. In that folder it will create a file named something like: MY-DOMAIN!koswoAsomeservername.sfx

What do I have to do in the msi file to make this logic work for every user that logs on to the computer?

Thanks a lot for your help!

You can use environment variables to replace these strings at the time of installation. Such as in your case probably you need "USERNAME" & "USERDOMAIN" which will be picked at the time of installation.
Kindly go through SDK to understand using of Environment Variables in your MSI.
