Question

Is there a Windows Installer property that holds the value of the setup.exe destination location?

Answer

The property, WISE_SETUP_EXE_PATH, holds the value of the setup.exe destination path wrapping an MSI file. This property holds the whole path value including the name of the EXE. Use WISE_SETUP_EXE_PATH to write the path of the installation to the registry, insert into a text file, or any other method needed to reference this value.

 

**Note: The 'Test', 'Debug', and 'Run' buttons in the GUI do not execute the compiled .EXE. To utilize the WISE_SETUP_EXE_PATH property, execute the .EXE created during compile.
