NEWBIE: How to update a Scheduled Task with new path?
Posted on 2006-06-16
We've been using InstallShield to install our product at customer sites. Previously, we'd insisted on a hard-coded location. Now we'll be letting them pick.
We ship a Scheduled Task with the product, which contains both:
Run: (a btach job, with full path)
Start In: (the working directory, with same full path)
Before, we could hard-code that full path. Now we need to change it either during or immediately after the install.
Is there a fairly simple way to do this? (We're pretty much dummies about installations...) Could InstallShield (pro) handle it? Could we write a Java program to do it? I looked at the Scheduled Task itself, with WordPad, and it's not in plain text.
Thanks a lot!
