In Vb's Package and Deployment Wizard, where do you define the installation directory? I'm compiling a game called Blip and by default it installs to program files\blip. I want it to go into Program files\CryoBeeF\Blip. How do I fix this?

If you are not set on using PADW, you could use INNO. Alot of people say it easier and better then PADW.

You can only set the default directory which is displayed - its in one of the screens.. you can't miss it. Your user will always be allowed to change it though.

From a users point of view, fixing the installation folder is really, really annoying. My system drive is E:, so I really would not you installing your program on my C: drive along with my audio files.
Please do not try to do this.

You can find the default installation directory in the setup.lst file, which is found next to setup.exe. It's located under the title:
just change $(ProgramFiles) to whatever directory you want to have as the default directory. Keep in mind, your users can change that directory.

Cheers all of you, I will use Medic's Idea though. So I should include the $ in the directory then?

No, and don't include the () either.
