Deployment Project - Setting Defaults Possible?

P: n/a
Is there a way in a deployment project to set the default values for
textboxes that will be displayed in a User Interface dialog?

Specifically, I want to be able to get a look at the environment and
then set the defaults that will be shown when the install dialog comes
up. For example, a default directory name would be based upon the
Windows user id, so I'd like to set the default, but still allow them
to override it using the textbox.

Also, I would like to be able to, if the environment so indicates, skip
an install dialog because the values will not be necessary in that
situation. The program to be installed has several different sections,
and if it's in a certain location, some options just are not relevant
and I want to be able to skip them altogether.

I could accomplish some of this with multiple deployment projects, but
it would be nice to avoid that.

TIA,

Joe
