Hello,

I'm creating MSI installation and I have two features, lets call them App and Data. Data feature installs by default into App folder, but I want to let user install Data feature somewhere else (e.g. on the Data disk), so I allowed the folder change for Data feature. Data feature consists of just on component, call it CData.

But - for my app running I need to specify where the Data feature is installed in *.ini file, so my app can find it. So in ini file i need something like:

[App]
Data=DataFolder

where DataFolder would translate (in the installation process) into path where Data feature or CData component (either one is OK).

I am not able to make it. Any help? Thx

This post is a bit old, but I'll reply anyway. Within your INI file, you need to enter in the following:

[App]
Data=[$CData]

The '$' is the directory where the CData component will be installed. Hope this helps.
