Set [TARGETDIR] in installer with value from registry

Hello experts,

I need to create an installation procedure that copies some files to a specific directory. This directory is a value that is stored in the registry. So I need to overrule the default installation path ([TARGETDIR]) with a value that is retrieved at run-time.

Any ideas how I can do this ?

Kind regards,
Andy

Ok, this is going to take a little bit of explaining :)

Step 1: In the Launch Conditions pane, under the "Search Target Machine" folder, add a new "Registry Search".
Step 2: Set the details of the key you want to search for and set the "Property" to MYREGPATH (or something similar)
Step 3: Switch to the File System pane and select the Application Folder.
Step 4: Set the Default Location to MYREGPATH (or whatever you used in Step 2)
