In setup wizard, in step regarding to files "File summary".

Click in File details...


In the field regardind to Destination directory (normally is $(AppPath) ) put :

$(AppPath)\Dirname1

When installing your program, the setup program will create an Dirname1 directory bellow your apppath and put the file (or files)
in question in that directory.

The default is $(AppPath) and you must change it for each file you want to put in a new directory.

Hope this helps
Regards

you have to create a costume setup from the setupkit\setup1 directory on the VB directory.
Make an exe and replace it with the existing file on Setup Directory on the VB directory.
BE CAREFUL, backup the old file.

The .exe is always the same?

To fguerreiro_inix  :  The different directories run different components like ActiveX and the directory structure has to be fixed as it is.

I have several suggestions but they all involve to modify the setup.
By the way : if you had InstallShield it would solve you all your problems ;)

Have you tried, after you generate the setup with the wizard,  modifying the setup.lst file generated? I'm not sure if it works.
