or should i use script? Any idea / sample of a script.

Regards,

I am having a problem similar to this but yours is a little easier - just package the files needed to a folder stucture in the the root of one of your drives (not in any predefined folders). This can now be refered to in your MSI package via the ROOTDRIVE property be it a mapped network drive , URL or Web location the MSI will install the folder sturcture there automaticly. Just install using the ROOTDRIVE="X:\" property X is the drive letter or URL. Note - This usually works but to make your install more reliable use a SET PROPERTY custom action to set ROOTDRIVE instead - that should be rock solid.

you will need to write a custom action to see if the drive is mapped, otherwise map it, then copy the file to the desired location via a custom action.

that is one way of doing it!

Its just like making a msi for a local app. Just capture the installation.
