Deployment projects

P: n/a
Hello,
I looked through the groups and didn't see a setup and deployment group so I
hope this is the right place to post this question. I have a VS deployment
project in my solution and I want to see a registry value that is the
install directory that the user chooses. I see that there is a Registry tab
view and I can add the correct key and it shows up in the target machines
registry. I've tried to set the value to
<INSTALLDIR>
[INSTALLDIR]
and
INSTALLDIR

and it just sets the value to one of the above instead of the actual
installation folder.
Is there a way to do this in a VS depolyment project?

Ken,
this is a little bit confusing and seems to deal with a web install rather
than a desktop install. Do I have to create a class and inherit from
Installer and then include all of the stuff that's already in the package
that VS and I included?

Steve,

Go to the solution explorer
Select your deployment project
And go than direct to the properties folder in that don't use rightclick
that gives the wrong properties.

I hope this helps,
