Help : VB net setup project

P: n/a
Dear all,

I have build a setup project for my VB.NET application, I need to know the
installation path of an application in order to add file in it.

How can do that inside my setup project ?
Any sample would help

regards

You shouldn't have to know the installation path when adding a file
to the setup project, just the path to the file on your local machine
(typically
one of the files in your current project).

Installation paths are nailed down at installation time, not setup project
creation
time as you can't foresee where the absolute path or UNC of a particalar
file on the target system.

Oups thanks for your answer Ben , but I did not understand what you means.
Or may be i did not explain clearly,

I have an original setup which has been install on customer PC. That setup
install one of our product.

Then I build a second setup which install other components to the initial
application but as a separate installation. In order to place the proper
components in proper location I need to get the initial installation path of
the first setup and then use that path in my second setup.

I do not know where the customer have install my product.

Thanks for your hep
Regards
