Synopsis

This article discusses how to retrieve and set properties, such as INSTALLDIR, in a VBScript custom action.


Discussion

The Session Object can be used to set and retrieve information in a MSI database. InstallShield recommends using the Session Object to retrieve and set properties if using VBScript.

The following line retrieves the INSTALLDIR property:

szInstallDir = Session.Property("INSTALLDIR")

The following line sets the value of the INSTALLDIR property:

Session.Property("INSTALLDIR") = szInstallDir
