Get the path of the installed application by the installer

Status: Declined

The purpose of this is the user saves time creating installers  that have the same application but theirs configuration files are different.

You probably need to provide more detail...

 

  • Get how? What does the installer do with the path?
  • Installer for what?
  • Usually the programmer, not the user creates installers. Please explain.
  • Save time how?
  • "Same" as what?
  • "Different" how?

The point is our Applications always need a configuration file. This file is different for same equipment because it contains calibration parameters.

The fact to creates an installer takes a few minutes. We think we can save some time creating a script that installs the installer made by LabVIEW and the specific configuration file later.

I hope I have explained properly.

 

Thank you.

This script sounds like something that is outside of the LabVIEW application builder and is a part of the job whoever is trying to make the script that runs the application installer and then copies the configuration file.
