    Create Folder upon deployment.

    How can I create a folder on my Application Installation Path upon installing my application?

    Thank you!

    How long is a piece of string?

    Without mentioning what tools you are using it is very hard to answer this kind of question.

    Re: Create Folder upon deployment.

    I'm using ClickOnce.
    I found out that you can't change the installation folder.
    I'm using vb 2010 express, from what I read it only supports ClickOnce.

    What are my options? Can you please suggest a third-party deployment tool?

    Here's what I was hoping to accomplish:
    1. Deploy my app on Program Files/My Publisher/My App
    2. Create one folder containing subfolders in Program Files/My Publisher/My App


    Thank you!

    One issue with ClickOnce is that it isn't really "installation" in the conventional sense. See the table:

    Some Differences between ClickOnce and Windows Installer (MSI) in the page at Microsoft ClickOnce Technology.

    ClickOnce is the only option I have since I only got the express edition.

    May I have your opinion on this:
