The /r parameter on the File command will recurse into all subfolders. So this install section should do it:

section "install"
  SetOutPath $INSTDIR
  File /r Bibliesp
sectionEnd

Open in new window

Hi

I don't know if I did it correctly.

The script used:
  SetOutPath "$INSTDIR"
  File /r "Main Program"
  FileWrite $R0 "Install directory is $INSTDIR. $\r$\n"
...

  InstallDir "C:\Bibliesp\"

Open in new window


The Nullsoft instalation folders:

It says:

"Main Program" -> no files found.

In the file /r command you should specify the name of the root folder. For example, here's a small, working script that will install "root folder" and all of its subfolders:

InstallDir "$PROGRAMFILES\Test Installing Subfolders"
Name "Test Subfolders"
OutFile "Setup.exe"
section "install"
  SetOutPath $INSTDIR
  file /r "root folder"
sectionEnd

Open in new window

The above installer works — try it. It will create a Setup.exe that installs root folder and all its subfolders (and all files) in $PROGRAMFILES\Test Installing Subfolders (such as c:\Program Files (x86)\Test Installing Subfolders on a 64-bit system). Regards, Joe

Our messages crossed. I did not study your entire 395-line script, but based on the installation folder structure you just posted, I think that all you need to do is change your file /r command to this:

File /r "c:\A_Instala_Biblioteca_V1"

Open in new window


Of course, in a 395-line script, there could be other issues, but your File /r "Main Program" is clearly the first problem. Regards, Joe

Hi @Joe

I didn't intend you check all the script file, I attached it just in case any other information eventally had  beeing needed.

Following what you posted, I just made a minor change the instalation folder to:

img003
File /r "c:\A_Instala_Biblioteca_V1\A_Instala_Biblioteca_FULL_V1\Bibliesp"

Open in new window


Install the package and the instalation is:
