We have a program that will download a newer version, uninstall the current version, then install the new version. There would be no update but an uninstall-install.In order for us to uninstall, we need the location of the installer exe. This is why we need it in a known location.

 It already caches itself in a special location.  Why does your requirement require it to be copied to yet another location?

Hi All,
We have a requirement where after the installation of our standard bootstrapper(i.e: sample.exe), it must be copied to a certain directory. There aren't any custom actions available for the bootstrapper. In what way can the bootstrapper copy itself to a certain location after install that would least affect its file size?
