App-V Editor Install Parameters Page

Installation Folders

  • Application Folder - in this field you can specify the default path for the installation folder. This path is represented by the "Application Folder" directory in the Files and Folders Page. During the installation, the user can modify this path by either using the [ Browse ] button in the "FolderDlg" (Select Installation Folder) dialog or by manually editing the Path Edit control on the same dialog. The default value of this field points to a sub-folder of the "Program Files" folder.
  • Application Shortcut Folder - in this field you can specify the default path of the folder which will contain the application's shortcuts. This path is represented by the "Application Shortcut Folder" directory in the "Files and Folders" page. The default value of this field points to the Windows taskbar's "Start" -> "Programs" menu.

These values are directly editable, with a suggested set of defaults available in the drop-down lists. Click the [ Edit... ] button to change them through the Edit Formatted Type Dialog.
