Specifying application folder?


Recommended Posts

Hey all, I've been browsing the site and forums for a few days now and am working on my first unattended XP CD. MSFN is a really great resource! After searching the forums up and down for the last two days, I still haven't found anything on specifying the application folder, so I guess it's safe to ask about it. ;)

Here is how I set up my Windows:


d:\Program Files

e:\Documents and Settings

That's the easy part, of course; got that covered with winnt.sif. So on to "d:\Program Files":

I don't want to have all applications installed in the \Program Files folder. Rather, I prefer to put them into categories and sub-categories. Following are some examples:

\Program Files
..\BS Player

The question now is, how do I specify these folders so it's done automatically? Is it possible to do this with RunOnceEx, or necessary to use something else?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here's an example for MSI-installer based apps:

%systemdrive%\install\apps\officeXP\setup.msi TRANSFORMS=unattended.mst INSTALLDIR="D:\Program Files\Productivity\Office" /QB-!

But this is a really time-consuming task. Just let the apps install where they want to.
