TEMP env variable wrong in IS2011

I recently converted a project from IS2010 to IS2011 and notice that the administrator's TEMP environment variable changes once in Deferred Execution. In Immediate Execution, it is located in C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\1, where I expect it to be. However, once in Deferred Execution, it changes to C:\Windows\Temp.

Any idea why it changes?

I opened up the IS2010 version of the project and confirmed that it remains pointed to C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\1 throughout the install. The custom action VBScript code is contained in an external file, so I am using the same CA code in both versions of the install.

I'd rather not have to begin to account for this switch in all my projects that I intend to upgrade to IS2011, so some information about this would be much appreciated.

Start using the "TempFolder" property like I told you yesterday. Jeez.

Are you using the InstallShield built-in SQL scripts support in your installation? If so, apply the hotfix posted in this thread, and see if it fixes your issue.

I'm seeing the same behavior with IS 2011, that TempFolder ends with \2 in immediate execution, and without the \2 in deferred execution.
