Install folder path in Installation summary panel shown is wrong

Hi
I am creating installer using InstallAnywhere 2009.
At the installation summary panel path shown under "Install Folder" is different more specific it shown temp folder path.
I have set USER_INSTALL_DIR correctly as I am displaying it.

But when I build same installer with IA 2008 then everything works fine.

Is there anything change in InstallAnywhere 2009 compare to InstallAnywhere 2008 in this case which causing the issue

Thanks !!!

Re: Install folder path in Installation summary panel shown is wrong

I'm not sure, but I think it's got something to do with the time when variables are initialized. I think the change was between IA 2008 and IA 2008 VP1 (so this is why you've got it when switching from IA 2008 to IA 2009). I've upgraded from IA 2008 to IA 2008 VP1 a long time ago, that's why I'm saying that I'm not sure. Could you please post your project and a screenshot of the last panel (where you see the wrong information)?

Can you show the rules set on Set Variable $USER_INSTALL_DIR$?

Can you see while initialization of USER_INSTALL_DIR

Can you see while initialization of USER_INSTALL_DIR, you kept the check box selected "Evaluate any variable at assignment". if Yes, Un-select that and give a try. It should work.
