Hi,

First, InstallSimple is VERY cool.

I have an issue though -- I am trying to use it to install some MS Word templates. These need to go in a folder in the user's profile.

I don't see anything in the SpecialFolder pull down that goes into the profile. Normally, in a script/batch file I can copy to %AppData%\RestOfThePath but it is telling me that %AppData% contains illegal characters.

Is there a way around this?

Thanks so much!
Laura

Dear Laura,

Unfortunately, but InstallSimple 2.0 does not process the %AppData% variable.
And thus, installations to the user profile are not supported.

This is an Actual Problem Exclamation
In the next release we will extend the list of special folders.

We will notify you about the new release through email.
So, if it possible, please wait!

Thank you for interest to InstallSimple!
If you have any questions, please let us know.

Thanks for your reply!

If you're taking "requests" one other thing I need to do is install different files from my program to different locations. It seems that installsimple installs all files to one folder.

I look forward to hearing from you when new versions come out.

Dear Laura,

We release the new versions every 3 months.
The last version was released 25th August 2010. So, the next release we plan in December 2010. Arrow

The main feature - it will be support for multilanguage interface for installations and some improvements. Exclamation

Later we plan add to the PRO version the XXTEA encryption and ability to check the license keys for installations.

About installing files to a different locations - we provide it in a future.
If you have any questions, please let us know.

Kind Regards,
