How to change the Destination directory of a Merge Module in WSI?

How to change the Destination directory of a Merge Module in WSI?

How to change the Destination directory of a Merge Module in WSI?

(OP)
Background: I had created a Merge Module containing files to be merged to the directory where ever  the user wants to install the software.

Problem: The path of destination directory of the merge module is fixed. For example: if the path of destination directory is  set to c:\Program Files\xyz and the user wants to install the software to c:\Program Files\abc, the Merge Module will not copy files to c:\Program Files\abc else it will copy all files to c:\Program Files\xyz only.

Requirement: I want to make the path of destination directory to be variable so that where ever the user installs the software, the Merge Module will merge all the files to that directory. For example, if the user wants to install the software to c:\Program Files\abc then the Merge Module should pick this path and merge all files to this directory only.

Need help.

RE: How to change the Destination directory of a Merge Module in WSI?

Hello gpsk

You want to change you install location for the modules by

1. selecting "redistributables" in the Installation  
   Designer" view.

2. Next place a check in the box next to the module who's
   destination you want change.

3. This will bring up the merge module properties where  
   you can click on the destination tab.

5. I think you know the rest of the drill from this point.

Good Luck!  ;)
