deployment: [xxxx]? for directory letter of os
Posted on 2004-08-24
I am preparing a deployment for a program using .net deployment project.
I'm looking at the DefaultLocation property and I imagine that that might be where the product tries to get installed if user runs the setup and accepts all the defaults as they appear...
The question is, there must be some token which refers to the directory in which the operating system is installed.
For example [ProgramFilesFoler], I believe, refers to
C:\Program Files (should o.s. be installed on c: drive, as typically is the case)
Is there a token I can use to refer to the root directory in which the operating system is installed.
For example, if xp is installed on C: then
[Root] might give you C:\
(Only I don't know what that token is... I'm just guessing that it might be Root)
How do I set my DefaultLocation property of the Application Foler to point to x:\Apps directory, where x refers to the operating system in which program is installed.... Apps already exists as a directory...
I imagine that I might set the Manufacturer to be Apps, but it is trying to install to Apps\ and is thinking that Apps is some network directory location....
