How to execute custom action in a merge module from main module?

Hi all,


I have a merge module, that copies certain files and executes a custom action. The files should be copied to a location specified by user and then, from those files, a batch file should be executed.

For copying the files to a customized location, i am using TARGETDIR as the destination for the components in the merge module. However since i cannot execute a custom action in a merge module, i am executing it from the main module. The problem is i am unable to hand over the variable TARGETDIR (that contains the user specified installation location)to the main module. It is throwing an error.

How can i retrieve the path that user has specified, in the main module?

Use the Advertised variables feature in your MergeModule.
Then when you import your merge module, you can set variables from the parent to the mm.
