Component not installed

I have a 2012 Installscript project. I added a component that contains a SQLite database file. For the Destination I created a variable . In the FirstUIBefore function I used FeatureSetTarget(MEDIA, "", "C:\\DemoDB").

When I ran the install the directory was not created. I then modified the script to check for the existence of the directory and if not found created it with CreateDir. I ran the install again, the directory was created but the file in the component was not copied into that directory.

I then tried creating the folder in the Files and Folders view and inserting the file there also. When I run the install that does not create the directory or copy the file.

Do I have to create the directory and copy the file into it manually? I can do that but thought surely Installshield could handle that?

any help would be appreciated.

thanks!

Did you get the return value of FeatureSetTarget()?
What does that say?

The Help for FeatureSetTarget() says it always returns 0 . Is there some other way to determine what FeatureSetTarget is doing?
