Predefined folders in Installshield Transform

03/26/2012 10217 views

I'm creating a Transform with Installshield 2011 Pro, but seem to be missing some Predefined folders.

I want to add a file to %LocalAppData%. In the "Files and Folders" view, right clicking "Destination Computer" -> "Show Predefined Folder" lists only "CommanAppDataFolder" and "ProgramFilesFolder".

Why can't I get the other predefined folders (as per: http://kb.flexerasoftware.com/doc/Helpnet/installshield12helplib/IHelpPropReference.htm#wp1021297) to appear when creating a Transform?

The predefined folders in the help exist when you create a new project. When editing a transform you will only be able to select predefined folders that are defined in the Directories table. I suggest creating a new project and adding a dile to the dolder you want to show. Then look in the Directory table and create a corresponding entry in your transform.
