I have a BHO (Browser Helper Object) project that I have written in C++ .NET and would like to write an installer to deploy it. My question is that I need to store the dll location into the registry but the user may specify the install directory.

i) How do I specify the installation directory location dynamically in the registry view in a deployment project?
ii) Since I'm using the Studio .NET deployment project, will in need the .NET framework to run on the target machine?

I) In your setup go to Lauch Condititions and in "Search Target Machine" add Registry Search.In the properties specify the key and the value.In "Property" for the registry search type SETUPDIR.
Then go to File System and in Properties -> Default Location type [SETUPDIR]

II) Yes - you'll need the .NET framework...the app won't run without it.

Sorry for my english, but it's early in the morning here and I'm not native speaker :)
