Thread: Writing Setup programs

    Unhappy Writing Setup programs

    I am writing a setup program.

    What is the syntax for creating or copying a folder into a computer. I can make files with SaveToFile, but I can't make folders for my application to store information in. On top of that, how to I copy and paste an executable or other file onto someone's hard drive?

    If anyone could help me I'd much appreciate it. I would gladly return a favor.

    You need SetupOpenInfFile(); Goto MSDN and look for it. It lists all the other functions for setup API, too.
