Installation Directory Access from Installer Class

I cannot find ant doc to indicate how to access the user selected
installation directory during the install process. I am trying to update the
application confiduration file based upon some of the responses from the
user during installation.

Thanks in advance

Never mind I have already figured out the solution for this problem.

You add /DIR=[TARGETDIR] on the Custom Action Data property

Then you can access this from the installer class through

Me.Context.Parameters("DIR")
