How to specify a target installation folder for web setup project in Visual Studio 2005? RRS feed

  • User-193681999 posted

    Hi,

    I have created a web setup project for deploying a asp.net application and to package it as a single msi file.

    The Setup project is allowing me to specify the name of the virtual directory for my web application.

    The physical files actually get installed at c:\inetpub\wwwroot\[virtual directory name].

    I would like to specify a target installation folder like c:\MyApplication and map it to the virtual directory.

    I know there is an attribute TARGETDIR which specifies the path of the directory where the files actually get installed.

    I have added some custom action also for this setup project.

    I would like to specify the location of the TARGETDIR.Currently it is not getting installed if i specify the TARGETDIR

     

    Guys please help me.Any kind of help on these regard will be highly appreciated.
