I want to know how can I make an installation program to ask for a directory in which the installation should be done also it has to show the default directory in which the installation will be done if the user didn't specify the directory.

Use the "Application Setup Wisard" of VB5 step by step.

In the Window: "File summary", make sure your executable or components is in the list. If they are not there yet, use Button:"Add" to add them one by one.

After add your files, you select one of your file in the List and then you click the Button:" File Details ...". The Window:"File Details" will appear. Change the Destination Directory to "$(AppPath)".

When setup, the installation program will ask for a directory and will show a default directory.The file you selected will be put into that directory during installation.
