WPS 6.0: add a file to c:\

I have create an msi for Travel Control with WPS 6.0. During testing i noticed that the application needs a file in c:\ which the application creates the first time when it's been executed.

I copied that particular file to my packaging machine, opened the msi with WPS and wanted to add this file to the destination computer but noticed there is no c:\ or root is the destination pane.

Can anybody tell me how i can add this file to c:\ in WPS?

Every help will be appreciated.

Do like this

First check what is the parentdir for sourcedir in DIRECTORY table(It will be TARGETDIR)

Add a new component from setupeditor in components tab--->give the component name and in DIRCTORY give TARGETDIR and continue--->add the file from source path--->assighn it to a feauture and compile.

In the FILES view in installation expert the file should come under destination computer

You could use the systemdrive environment variable. Use it in your MSI with [%systemdrive]

Also you can use the ROOTDRIVE property but make sure to set it to C:\ in the property table first.

Hi,
you can create a new component and select the desired file and under destination select as [WindowsVolume] & set a key file [;)].

Thanks,

Yes, correct. However, instead of WindowsVolume property, I'd suggest to make use of ROOTDRIVE property (by setting it to C:\). As you specifically want it to be copied to C:\

I tried the [%systemdrive] option but as i'm not an experienced packager and have limited knowledge i ended up with the wrong result (C:\[%systemdrive]\file).

Here are the changes i made to my msi:
- open the msi with WPS
- in installation expert - files - i added the file from my computer to the windows directory in the destination pane
- in setup expert - components tab - i rightclicked the file - selected details - in the components details from the file i put [%systemdrive] in directory
- compiled the msi

There is no SOURCEDIR entry in the DIRECTORY table. SOURCEDIR is only specified as the defaultdit in the TARGETDIR entry.

That's what I am speaking about. Do what I have said above and you will be done.

last time I had to do something like this I used a CA but I think naveen's suggestion is worth a look. Standard actions always better if the task can be thus managed.
