    HOWTO: Create an Empty Folder

    Document ID: IR02031
    The information in this article applies to:
    • Setup Factory 6.0

    SUMMARY

    This article explains how to create an empty folder using Setup Factory 6.0.

    DISCUSSION

    When adding multiple files to Setup Factory 6.0, empty folders will not be added. A folder must meet the following conditions in order to be added to Setup Factory 6.0:

    • It contains one or more files.
    • It contains one or more sub-folders that contain one or more files.

    Note: A directory structure that contains only folders and no files will not be added to Setup Factory 6.0.

    If you would like to create an empty folder you must use the Create Directory action.

    If you create a folder using the Create Directory action it will not be automatically removed by the uninstallation process. Since you created the folder with an action you will have to remove the folder with an action. To remove the folder during the uninstall use a Remove Directory action on either the "Before Uninstalling" or "After Uninstalling" event.
