Specify a location for the installed files. You can enter a specific path or use pre-defined Windows folder locations shown in brackets in the drop-down list (or combine the two).

Note: The drop-down options available in this list depend on the Installation type you select in the Specify install locations pane. For details see Pre-defined folder keywords.


Include Shortcut

Specifies creation of a shortcut for the file selected in the table.


Opens the Add files to Package dialog box from which you can browse to the files you want to add.

Note: List items that refer to folders (for example, [ProgramMenuFolder]) are pre-defined folder keywords. You can create customized directories by adding new folder names with typical directory syntax (such as, [ProgramFilesFolder]\My Folder). Alternatively, you can enter a fully qualified path (for example, C:\Program Files\My Folder), as long as that location is known to exist on the target machine.



Sets selection of the install location or whether to add or remove a shortcut. (This allows you to change these selections after the file is added to the table.)



Removes the file selected in the table.

Note: Files added as part of a companion installer will overwrite any existing files with the same name found in the specified locations on the target computer.
