I need to install files on a Windows 7 x64 target system on the following location


When I use the default file location in Wise package studio: Windows\Profiles\Local Settings\Application Data the files are installed at C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\Roaming.
I need tips and tricks to deal with this in Windows 7 x74.

Can some one point me to the right direction

You could use a "Set Directory" custom action.
You need to set %Localappdata% to "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local"

...making sure, of course, that the CA is appropriately conditioned for the OS.

BTW, you're aware that the folder resolution you're seeing is occuring because you have roaming profiles? Are you sure that you want to move this application's data storage area?

See this document for details about Vista/Windows 7 tidying-up of these folders.
