Wise question

I haven't used Wise in a year and I'm in a bit of a hurry here so I'll just ask:
How do I deliver a file to each user's C:\document and settings\%username%\application data\ folder?
In Installshield you can just use a variable. I'm assuming you can in Wise too?

I havent been doing much traditional packaging but I believe the folder you want is Windows\Profiles\Application Data. That will translate to the path you mentioned.

Right, and the appropriate Windows Installer variable is called [AppDataFolder]

Have in mind if it's a per machine installation you will need to use a Set Property custom action (AppDataFolder=%UserProfile%\Application Data) and use a registry keypath for the component(s) holding resources going into this folder.

Uh oh, really? I did the registry keypath, but not the CA.
