    I was wondering if there a way to set a default folder like the user selected C:\ as installing path but i need it to install it to C:\+%ProductName% it's possible to do that ?

    You can use the "Select Install Folder" screen to allow the user to define or confirm the base folder of your installation, and then use "%AppFolder%\%ProductName%" as the actual destination path:

    You can also change/set the contents of the %AppFolder% Session Variable in script, etc. You have multiple choices to achieve this, but you need to explain better what you need. And just for your information, you are not supposed to install applications into C:\. Instead, use the ProgramFiles folder as the default destination for your application. Your application is not "special", no matter what you think, and you should follow the software deployment guidelines for Windows.
