Writing .INF Files to create Folder inside application Data Folder RRS feed

  • Question



                 I need some help regarding writing .inf file for my application.


    1)       I have a msi file

    2)       I want to download it to user’s machine through IE by a self extracting cab file.

    3)       I did the above and it is working fine.

    4)       But I need to create a folder with the GUID name inside users/appliactiondata Folder while installation is done.

    5)       How can I do it through the INF File

    6)       Can anybody suggest me how can I do it.
