    Question
    How do I make an install that uses "Sticky Folders"

    Answer
    In Setup Factory 6.0 there is an option to have a sticky folder. This feature would append a folder to the selected install folder. This is not a built in feature in Setup Factory 7.0 but the workaround is quite easy.

    In The "Select Install Folder" screen -> Actions -> "On Next" event add this code in between these 2 lines:
    Code:
    if(g_IsValidPath(strInstallFolderPath)) then
       -- insert the code at the end here
       -- if there's enough space on the selected drive, proceed to the next screen
       if(_SpaceAvailable >= _SpaceRequired) then
          -- This code will make a sticky folder
          -- Expand the session variable
          AppFolder = SessionVar.Expand("%AppFolder%");
          -- Append the sticky folder name to this result
          AppFolder = AppFolder.."\\StickyFolderName";
          -- And set the variable back to a Session variable.
          SessionVar.Set("%AppFolder%",AppFolder);
       end
    end
    For more information please see the following topics in the Setup Factory help file:
