Creation of installations for Windows Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am an InstallShield programmer. I need to create an installation suitable for different operational systems includind Windows Vista.

    Situation:

    - I run installation with administrator priviliges. The installation copies files into c:\Program Files\<my dir>.

    - I run the installed program as a standard user. The program accesses the instaled files to read/write. When I run the program the installed files get copied to c:\users\<user>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\<my dir>.

    - I run UPDATE installation with administrator priviliges. The installation copies files into c:\Program Files\<my dir>.

    - When I run the program it opens previous version of files. Virtual Directory does not get updated.

    Questions:

    1) Based on which file/system parameters Virtual Directory gets updated?

    2) Which directories are better suitable for Network/Client installations, Hard Drive installations?

     

    Thanks,

    Galina
