How can I get my Installshield MSI script (which generates a setup.exse) to suggest one Destination Folder if target machine is running Vista, and another Destination Folder if target machine is running any other Windows?

create 2 custom actions:
1:
property name = INSTALLDIR
property value: <destination if XP>
install ui sequence: after CostFinalize
install ui condition: VersionNT=501

2:
property name = INSTALLDIR
property value: <destination if Vista>
install ui sequence: after CostFinalize
install ui condition: VersionNT>=600

It should also be put into install exec sequence, for the case when the installation runs without user dialog - but be careful not to override the choice already made in user interface sequence - if it was.
