Can we modify the path of setup.exe?

We are using installshield 2014 for deploying our application. Currently whenever installshield creates build, ‘setup.exe’ is created in folder ‘Disk1’.

Can we modify the path of ‘setup.exe’ and place it under any child folder of ‘Disk1’. For example can we set path of setup.exe like ‘~\Disk1\Support\Setup.exe’?

In the Media > Releases area of the IDE, on the Build tab of the Release you can specify the "Release Location" and you can set the "Shallow Folder Structure" flag to "Yes". Setting the Shallow Folder Structure flag will eliminate the whole layered folder structure below the base path of the project data folder. You can play with the specified path in the Release Location to try to get what you desire. It has limitations and changes the support data location, but you may find a way to make it work for what you need.
