Installing software with batch file

Hello

I have software that I want to distribute with a batch file. I saw that this software default installdir was in user profile -> appdata.
So I gave a parameter INSTALLDIR in batch file. Everything worked but then I saw in menu start a weird name folder with the application in this folder.
Can I change this folder name with my batch? I can not find any info about this.

Thanks!

In Win7: Start > All Programs is actually
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
Hence if you rename the folder there, it will reflect this change in the start menu as well.

Nope, the folder is located @ C:\users\(user)\appdata\roaming\microsoft\windows\start menu\programs

So it is on user based and not computer based, just like the default installdir of this software.
But this can I change with my batch script, but can you also change menu start dir?

It doesn't really matter where the folder is, you can just rename it.
While you said it's located where you found it, that's the personal Programs folder.
I pointed you to the more used, system wide Programs Folder.
But the procedure is still the same. Just rename it, and the changes will be directly reflected on the start menu.
