Note
Basically the MSI was creating using the Scan and Capture technique. The real program came when the program decided to install user settings locally. By using the VBS script outlined below, I was able to copy the necessary default folder/file structure to new users.

I configured the ini file C:\Program Files\Mindscape\Mavis Beacon 8\MAVIS8.ini to always look under the users profile for the necessary settings so no further action was necessary. For example, user settings are copied from the C Drive to the N Drive.

Dim objFSO
Dim WshShell
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

If (objFSO.FolderExists("N:\My Settings\Application Data\Mindscape\Mavis Beacon 8\MavUser\Custom")) Then
REM WScript.Echo("Found the folder")
Else
REM Couldn't find folder so copy from C Drive
REM Wscript.Echo("Couldn't find folder")

REM Create the folder structure
objFSO.CreateFolder "N:\My Settings\Application Data\Mindscape"
objFSO.CreateFolder "N:\My Settings\Application Data\Mindscape\Mavis Beacon 8"
objFSO.CreateFolder "N:\My Settings\Application Data\Mindscape\Mavis Beacon 8\MavUser"
objFSO.CopyFolder "C:\Program Files\Mindscape\Mavis Beacon 8\MavUser\Custom", "N:\My Settings\Application Data\Mindscape\Mavis Beacon 8\MavUser\Custom"
End If
