Does any one know how to create folders on a network drive using the CreateFolder table in windows installer?

Thanks.

You can make properties with the desired Drive letter and path (ore combined in one of course). Then add the folder with the property name between brackets ([]).

Extra advantage is that the path is now in a variable property, so the path and drive is configurable during install.
Hoop this helps [;)]

We had some trouble with network drives. We couldn't create folders on a network drive (even if we used dir properties) during advertisement. Didn't find a solution for this, so we used an additional vbscript.
