Hope I'm posting in the correct location.

I have a problem where I am trying to automate a Lotus Notes 8.0.1 install on Vista. I have created an .mst file (using installshield tuner) and I have the correct .msi syntax/command to run my install. However, one thing is still frustrating me.

I want to install the data directory into the user profile (e.g. c:\users\<username> or c:\documents and settings\<username>), of the currently logged-on user. In the Tuner this is the "DATADIR". However I cannot find the right syntax/variable for this. Does anyone know if this possible?

(I can complete the install manually but wish to save time and effort)

I have searched the web and this forum for answer, but cannot find any. Thanks in advance![:)]

Assuming DATADIR is the name of a property you can set its value from the command line like:

msiexec /i "path\Notesinstall.msi" TRANSFORMS="path\mytransform.mst" DATADIR="%userprofile%\notesdata"
