Installation help

Hi,

I am trying to create an installation .msi for a windows application.

The application lets the user navigate in various ways to particular PDF, and then open them from within the application. My question is...

Where should I install the PDFs?

and (more importantly)...

How do I do this?

I think the answer to the first question is C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\

So how do I go about installing the images there, un-installing them later, and pointing my application to the correct directory.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,

MrG
