InstallShield - Setting The Destination Path
Posted on 2000-03-06
I need to do a basic transfer of files.
From within the 'Components' pane, I'm assuming I need to set the 'Destination variable. However, the destination properties (shown below) don't allow folder creation directly from the root directory such as 'C':
Windows Operating System
Program Files Folder
General Application Destination
My first question is, should I use the 'Scrip-defined' option? If so, is it necessary to define the script variable (svDir), and where is the appropriate function found? Although it's obvious that some function takes the svDir variable, it's not obvious which function this is, or where svDir is defined such as "C:\\Reports\\"
Second question: from within the 'Media Build Wizard', the option is given to select the 'Disk Type'. I'm assuming that at some point the installation program and files are transferred to the media disk chosen here. Where is there an option to create each media disk?
Will increase points if needed.
