Using PATH variables

Is it possible to use PATH variables (like %QTDIR%) in the .isl?

If so please help, as I can't get it to work.

This does not appear to work and searching installshield documentation for information specific to the InstallShield 2012 Spring LE edition is "difficult" at best.

Fixed relative paths for file content can be copied by the Install Shield Limited Edition to the output directory ( Visual Studio 2012 ) Steps:

-> Expand your install project in the Solution Explorer so you see the 1,2,3,4,5,6 sections

-> Expand '2' and double click on 'Files' You will see a four panel page: with 'Source computer's files' and 'Destination computer's files'
delete your hard coded paths and files from the 'Destination computer's files'.

-> Click in the top left panel, on the project that has your files as 'Content Files',the top right panel will show 'Content Files from MyProject'
-> Click and drag this to the bottom right panel (the 'Destination computer's files')

Go back into your project and make sure all your files you want copied have properties: Build Action=Content and Copy to output directory=Copy Always.

Hope this helps.
