    Question C# VS2005 - Installing deployed application to an specif path

    Hello everyone,

    Where exactly do I configure a C# application to install in a specific path? Like, for example:

    C:\Program Files\myApp

    Please note that I don't mean the deployment folder!

    I looked throughout the application properties, publish properties and publish Wizard, but didn't find a configuration option for that.

    Thanks a lot,

    The installer will suggest a deployment path. Please note that you MUST use the macro variables. I'm using a german version of windows and there is no "Program Files" directory. I can tell a good program from a ........ty little hack by installing it. If it installs to "Program Files", it's crap, if it installs to "Programme", the german program files directory, it might be ok.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
