VSI installation folder location

I have a project I created in Visual Basic 6.0. I would like to deploy this project using the Visual Studio Installer 1.1. The vb project must be installed into a directory (i.e. C:\TestDir) in order for the application to work. In the P&D wizard it was easy enough to set the DefaultDir property in the setup.lst file to accomplish this but I cannot find an equivalant in VSI. So what I would like to do is create a installation package that skips the select installation folder dialog screen and simply forces the installation into a custom directory that I define. If anyone could help with this I eager to learn how its done.
Thanks,
Todd

I have found a solution. Using Orca to edit the generated msi file from vsi you can edit the custom action table and change the line starting with DIR_CA_TARGETDIR so the target field is the directory of your applications final destination.
