Install Editor - Files - Add files to c:\

Hello,

I'm trying to add two textfiles to the root directory (c:\) on the destination computer. However, I only see the "My Documents", "Program Files" and "Windows" option. If I try the highest one, it makes me create another folder.

Is there, besides scripting, another solution ?

Thanx!

Nosfer

What tool are you using to edit the MSI?

I've not used WPS for quite some time but you should be able to add the WindowsVolume to your list of directories where you add files to your installation. That should allow you to put files on your C: drive, provided you've installed windows on the C: drive.

Easy as pie with InstED.

You just need to configure the Directory table correctly and configure that entry in the components table.

All you need are these two entries:

TARGETDIR | SOURCEDIR |
ROOTDIR | TARGETDIR | .

That represents the three first columns in the directory table.

Then on the component with the files you'll configure it with ROOTDIR as Directory_

With this setup the source files will need to be in the same directory as the .msi file.

The screwing around in the directories like you said worked :) thanks!
