Why is my software being installed in C:\ProgramData\Dell\KACE\downloads\ folder?
I have an old (circa 2004, i think) program I'm trying to add to the K1000 Service Desk. I've got it packaged up into a zip file and added to the Software Library. It just launches setup.exe, and the user has to manually go through the install windows. At one point in the install it asks for an install path. The default is C:\Program Files\ProgramName. I leave it at default, and continue through the installation.
After the installation completes, I check C:\Program Files\ProgramName, and the directory is there but empty. The new program shortcuts on the Desktop and in the Start Menu point to an exe file in a subfolder of C:\ProgramData\Dell\KACE\downloads\7284\. Except of course that directly doesn't exist anymore, as it's deleted as soon as the install completes.
What's going on here?
Figured it out. Apparently this piece of software originally came off a physical CD, and it's not supposed to install most of the files. The install procedure actually just installs three files, and then creates shortcuts that point back to the original install location (which it assumes to be a CD). I'll just use xcopy to dump the entire program thing into Program Files, that should do it.
