VS 2005 .NET2.0 deployment on Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I am using VS 2005 and have a .NET 2.0 application that needs to be installed to users from Win 98 to Vista.  The application is complete and the setup deployment .msi is also complete.  The installation and program works fine on all Win OS's except Vista.   

    In the program I need to access custom user files that are located under C:\Program Files\App Name\User Files.  This structure works well on all OS's except Vista with the UAC turned on.  For the Vista installations, I would like to change the directory where these user files are located to be under the My Documents directory.

    Can anyone tell me if there is a parameter or test condition that can be used in the VS 2005 Setup and Deployment  area that will tell what OS the application is being installed on, ie Vista?


    Some restrictions
    1)  can't use one-click deployment, I need an MSI file
    2)  the directory structure for installs other then Vista needs to stay at C:\program Files\..... for backwards compatibility
