    Re: Setup Directory

    Thanks Lorna,

    Brilliant just what I wanted, I was using the .PDF Help as manual that I had printed out, and it did not have the #ISODate#.
    I have ammended the path to

    C:\T3\#ISODate#.#CurrentHour##CurrentMinute#
    Which results in
    C:\T3\2002-01-16.1630

    This means that we can now have an archive of previous releases even if more than one a day is done (We com components that develop internally for another department).

    SetUp Factory certainly beats Wise for ease of use and flexibility.

    John

    Use the design-time constant #ISODate# instead, and it will work fine.

    For more information on variables and design-time constants, see the command reference or read Chapters 2 and 14 in the amazingly, brilliantly and wonderfully gigantic user's guide.

    started a topic Setup Directory

    Setup Directory

    I would like to automate the location of my setup file location, which would be the equivalent of doing

    Project\Settings\OutputSettings\Output Folder

    c:\Mysetup\%ISODate%

    so that the setup folder changes for each installation.

    However the output folder box does not like the %ISODate%, and is not replaced with
    c:\Mysetup\2000-01-16
    which is what I am after.

    Can anyone help?
Working...
