This can happen if costing is completed before the installation folder is identified in the MSI. If the value is being specified as a propery name, and the property name is set manually in the MSI (using a custom action), be certian it is done prior to the CostInitialize action.
One member writes, "I moved the custom action that inserted the rows in the Directory and RemoveFile tables from InstallExecuteSequence to InstallUISequence. In both cases the action occurs before the CostInitialize action."
