It seems that the %USERPROFILE% variable is interpreted incorrectly when an application is installed to another drive (i.e. [font="courier new"]D:\APPS) then the system drive [font="courier new"]C:\.

The installation of the repackaged application creates the content of the %USERPROFILE% folder to the target drive root ([font="courier new"]D:\). All the files mentioned in the recipe .XML which refer to the %USERPROFILE% are written to D:\.

This renders the application in a unpredictable state.

What is the solution to the problem?

I seems to me that this is a bug in the ADR. I wish to install the package to the D:\Apps folder.
