InstallShield Installation Path RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created an installation code using the "Deploying an Office Solution by Using Windows Installer"

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc442767.aspx

    My machine is a 64bit running office 64 bit.

    I have been told that the code installed in the "32bit" paths on the machine it was installed on.

    I created 64bit registry keys.

    Where is the "install path" defined (so I can get in the correct folders on the windows 64/office 64 machines)

    Thanks

    Adam

  • Hello Adam,

    It is up to you. Typically per machine add-ins are installed to the Program Files folder. And per user add-ins are installed to user's profile folders (AppData). See Specify where to install the solution on the user's computer for more information.

  • Thanks Eugene , for the speedy response.

    I followed the example without thinking , just to see if it would work. It did , so I thought I was good.

    I will change for the 64 bit path .

    Thanks again.
