Cannot change installation folder by using InstallShield 2013 LE in VS 2012

Hi,

I have an ASP.NET application. I selected an option which allow user able to modify the installation location of the application. Then I built the solution and created a setup file with MSI format.

Option: DO you want users to be able to modify installation location and then I build Installation? Yes

When i install application, it installs in default folder [ProgramFilesFolder] even if i change Installation folder during setup.

Can anyone advise on this how to change installation directory?

Working Environment:
MS Visual Studio Professional 2012
InstallShield 2013 Limited Edition

Thanks,
Tony

Hi Tony,

When you look at the Specify Application Data > Files view, did you place the files in a folder that has the [INSTALLDIR] property next to it or just a sub folder under [ProgramFilesFolder]?
Also, is there an empty folder at where the new install location should be?
