Add a row in the Directory table as below..

Set WindowsVolume as a directory in the Directory table and then add TARGETDIR as the directory_parent and . in the defaultdir column
Add another row to the directory table with TARGETDIR as your directory_parent giving appropriate names and that should create a directory structure for you on the C:\ drive 9WindowsVolume)

do you want to find the file or add the file to the C:\?
In case you want to add it via your package then make sure you have the file in a component that installs to TARGETDIR provided you are installing things to the C:\.

Hi Slay_u, I need to do the same (create a file in C:\), but I don't understand very well your procedure, could you explain me?

Thank you!

cmi2000, since you're (apparently) using Wise why don't you just capture it and see for yourself? [;)]

I don't know why... but the capture isn't taking this file, and Wise Package Studio don't let me put a file in C:\

Just to add some clarity (and as per the SDK guidelines), if you wanted a folder 'MyFolder' to install to the root of C:\, the Directory table should really look like this:

Directory...............Directory_Parent.......DefaultDir
INSTALLDIR...........TARGETDIR...............MyFolder
TARGETDIR..........................................SOURCEDIR

Ensure you have a property in your Property table called ROOTDRIVE set to, say, C:\
