The File and Component tables offer the functionality without re-inventing the wheel.  What are you trying to accomplish here?

It is more fruitful to property drive an MSI or Bundle--something I do frequently with XML response files and a custom action or an mba.

Hello all,

Can i read a sourcedir and installdir from a txt file?

The txt file looks like this:

File1.exe,        <%SourceDir%>, <%InstallDir%>folder\ ,0
File2.dll,          <%SourceDir%>, <%InstallDir%>otherfolder\,1

Filename, Sourcedirectory, Installdirectory, Selfreg(1/0)

The file is way larger of course and there are many more files.

Stijn de Winter
