AppData Directory

Postby BjornGeiner » Tue Sep 30, 2014 10:28 pm

Hi, is it possible to set the AppData directory in Roaming, Local or LocalLow with InstallForge?

In the Setup Constants topic in the Tutorials part of the forum <AppData> and <AppDataPublic> are said to be built-in setup constants, but somehow I haven't figured out how to set those yet.

Of course, the idea would be to create a folder in AppData with the same name as the program which can be used to store data specific to the user. So, thanks in advance for any help in this regard.

Ok, I guess I understand it better now having spent some time with it, having seen what other programs do and having read the documentation.

Just use a command of type "shell" using the windows cmd language, to create the folder.

Here is an example: cd <appData> & md MyApp

So now it's working well, though each user must install separately.

Thank you for this very good freeware program.

Sorry I couldn't jump in the conversation sooner but I really had no clue how to do what you wanted. I'm glad to see you figured it out!
