Hi,
I'm creating a Setup project and I would like to add some information
to the user's Application Data folder, with the typical Manufacturer
\Application structure. I have created a special folder and selected
"User's Application Data Folder", but I cannot create a subfolder that
automatically has the manufacturer name. I can only do it by writing
the name by hand, but that's not what I want.

I have managed to do it by creating a custom folder with the
DefaultLocation set to [AppDataFolder][Manufacturer]\[ProductName],
but I think it would be more correct to do it with special folders, if
at all possible. Otherwise, it doesn't seem logical to provide direct
access to those special folders if you have to hardcode the
subfolders' names.

So, is there any way to do it by using the special folders or do I
have to go on with custom folders?

Thanks in advance

Mikel
