Re: Change installation path when no features are selected

Hi Kissack,
I have a setup project that has some components(featured) installed by default and do not appear in feature tree.
Can you give us more details about your product's organization tree? Maybe you can attach a sample project (AIP file).

Regards,
Daniel
