A97 runtime objective: put a set of files in alternate dir

P: n/a
MLH
I have 142 audio files that provide context sensitive help for an
application. Yes, I can simply put them on a CD and manually
copy their target directory myself. But it would be handy to have
them placed in a dir of their own by the A97 runtime setup
program. Here's the problem - I want those files to go into
a directory other than $(AppPath), $(WinPath) or $(WinSysPath).
Those are the only choices the setup wizard gives me to locate
my files.

Anyone with experience in building A97 runtimes who has overcome
this obstacle, do the kind thing and share your experiences.

I should have mentioned this, lets say $(AppPath) is
c:\program files\myappdir\, I would want the .wav files
to go into c:\program files\myappdir\help\

I do not know how to specify that to the setup wizard.

I did not go to help first. Sorry. I went to help and it said
use this syntax: $(AppPath)\subfolder

Now, I just wish I could add all 142 files in a batch, In the

Have you tried...

$(AppPath)\help\

We missed each other by a minute there.
Glad to know another runtimer though.
