Install Visual Studio 6.0 Complete and start the package and deployment wizard, and select your project name , then go thru some steps it asks for the directory structure where your projects needs to be installed. change that structure to your requirement and that it.
   I think this is the answer for your question
 if this does not solve the problem go for the install shield to install the software as per your requirement.
best of luck

Can you let your application detect if the directory exists and if not create it before trying to access it?

WHy not have the option to create the directory.  My understanding is that if the directory exists it will use it but not try to create another.
