Unless the property ROOTDRIVE is specified, WI will install to the local drive with the most free space. Search AppDeploy posts and MSDN for details on ROOTDRIVE.

ROOTDRIVE

Well, which problem is it that you want help with? Have you got the ROOTDRIVE thing sorted?

Forget the HTA: it's just a front end to calling SETUP.EXE anyway (which you'd see if you opened the HTA in Notepad/WordPad.)

Forget creating an answer file from Setup.EXE. VS Express Edition is installed by MSI so extract those and create response transforms for them.

To D:\That is the correct value.
