hi,
i want to set a folder name to the property [ProductVersion]
so, in the files and folders view i have a folder called [ProductVersion]

when i install the app the folder is created but called [ProductVersion] including the brackets.
Am i missing something? why is it not resolving to the property value?

Frodo,
Why don't you try using a Type 35 Custom Action (CA)?

For example, let's say you create a folder called 'C:\Program Files\FolderHolder', and this directory path resolves to 'INSTALLDIR'.

(In Wise) You should create a type 35 CA, set the name of the CA to whatever you want (say, 'setDirName'), set the directory to 'INSTALLDIR' and set the directory value to '[ProgramFilesFolder][ProductVersion]'. This should execute in an immediate context before the InstallInitialize standard action.

Your CustomAction table would look something like this:
Action Type Source Target
setDirName 35 INSTALLDIR [ProgramFilesFolder][ProductVersion]
