        Actually if you copy and paste that URL into your browser, it should pop up the target thread. It worked for me when I did it. That particular response was at:

          Here's a copy of the post...

          Adding files to your Setup Factory 6.0 project automatically maintains the hierarchy for you, assuming you either add a whole folder tree at once or define the base directory that all of your files branch off of.

          Adding the whole folder tree is the fastest and easiest way to do it. For illustration, start with an empty project. Click "Edit > Add Files...". Navigate to the top level of your file hierarchy. Choose the option at the bottom of the dialog that says "Add Mode: All files in this folder and all sub folders". Click OK and voila! Setup Factory 6.0 will add all of your files to your project with the Destination set accordingly to %AppDir% or %AppDir%\foldername as necessary.

          You can always modify your Base Directory from Project > Settings | Directories.

          The final method is to set the installation folder manually. It's a lot easier than you think. You can highlight as many files as you want and then choose Edit > File Properties. Fill in your chosen installation path in the box labelled "Install files to this location" and click OK. The change is propogated to all of your selected files. Fast and easy.
