Install shield for vc++6.0 question

I need to copy two files to two seperate directories depending on registry entries I am checking that the reg entries are there and storing them in glodal variables what I'm stuck on is how to include the two files in the installation media and how to then copy or install them to their directories. This is my first time using install shield so if some one could explain this or send a sample it would be appreciated.

InstallShield has a tab "Files" , where you can drag & drop files to create the virtual tree you want .

I am not sure where is that for Visual C++ InstallShield however .

After selecting group in component just click once and type <TARGETDIR>. If you want to create new dir and want to install in that then <TARGETDIR>\your directory name.

I hope this helps

I am not sure how you can do two at a time but If you want to do only one file then look at the function
ProcessBeforeDataMove(); In Scripts TAB and set szAppPath to your registry entry(Variable)

Sorry about mixed up

Thanks for your help it sort of works that way you need to set the target directories then move files & you can do as many as you want
