Hi All,

I have installation files for an application sitting on a server. I want to create a custom action in an MSI to run a .exe file from a directory two levels down from the MSI file. The absolute path will vary as this msi will sit on various servers so i'm looking for a way to specify a relative path to the .exe from the MSI. Does anyone have any ideas on how i do this?

Cheers
Scotty

I belive the MSI APPSEARCH feature will give you what you are looking for- but it is really intended to find and return paths of local files- you may need to map a drive in order to have this work for a network location.

Just how this is implemented depends upon what MSI editor you are using, but the raw information can be found here:
