Copy a file from current folder to Installation folder while Installation -LE

We are using "Install Schield Limited Edition 2012" to create the installer of our application. As per requirement we need to copy an xml file which is reside in the set up folder to the installation folder. Is it possible?

For example: Suppose our installer placed in “c:\NewFolder” and we will place the xml file to the same folder. When the user try to install the installer , we need to copy the xml file to the installation folder like c:\Programs\Application. How can we accomplish this feature using Install schield limitted edition.

NS: We cannot embed the “XML” file with installer, since the xml content may change based on user

Any help would be appreciable.

Hi Ranish,

A custom action with a custom script to copy the file will need to be created and scheduled in the Custom Action view.
It will need to be scheduled near the end of the install if the folder you are copying to is created by the installer.
