    Resolved How to add folder in setup c( Resolved)

    I have created the setup for my application. There are some folders and files in my application which I would like to add in my setup. In setup creation, there are options to add files. But what if I have to add folders and to make sure that those files will be added into corresponding folder after installing on client machine. For example, in my case in bin folder i have folders like,
    _Audio
    _Images
    _Video
    and these folders inturn hold many files and subfolders. How to make sure that these folders will be created on client machine with all the files in theirs......


    Thanks in advance..

    In the AppPath column for the file that was added, you type
    into it a backslash and the folder name you want it to create and
    place the file into. So if you have a file called test.txt and it goes
    in the bin folder in the application install path then it will be like
    this. (AppPath)\Bin\test.txt. The folder will automatically be
    created when the file is attempted to be installed in the non-
    existant directory.
