This is my new basic question :

I would like to find the path of the folder which include a file (blibli.txt). I can't use a registry key to know it, so I use the AppSearch function.

But in InstallShield 10.5, when I try to use "Search for : Folder Path, by searching for a specific path", it gives me, in my property (named FOLDERPATH for example) :

FOLDERPATH = c:\....................\The_Folder\blibli.txt.
But I would like not to have the filename in the path, in order, for example, to use it as INSTALLDIR path.

How can I do that ? I tried to modify the AppSearch, DrLocator and Signature table, but didn't succeed in...

It's not that basic!

Lucky for you this has already been asked and here is the answer courtesy of Mr B Hunter.

You may need to fiddle with the VB Script to get the results you need but it should do the trick.

Hope it helps,
