Moving previous AppData files to new location (if any exist) during install.

Hi, I'm looking to move any existing AppData from the old app install to the new AppData location (company name change). i.e. All files in C:\Users\\AppData\Local\CompanyName1 to be moved to C:\Users\\AppData\Local\NewShinnyCompanyName ?

I am quite new to all things InstallShield and not sure how to tackle this. Can anyone tell me how I can accomplish this task?

Is there anything out of the box in InstallShield that can help or do I have to manually create or edit install scripts to do this? 

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

Write custom action to move your appdata files to another location. We can write custom action using Installscript , vbscript, Powershell..etc
If you are using Basic MSI project then use LocalAppDataFolder property. This will return local app data path.
