Installshield, Common Documents

Hi!

I need the path to “Common Documents” folder without hard coding the path in “Files and folder”, this to support different languages.

There is no predefined folder for common documents so is there any solution for retrieving this folder?

Create system search for registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\Common Documents. Return the result in the property with the same name as Directory Identifier of your folder, which you can see in its Properties under Installation Designer/Files and Folders

Here's a sample
