I'm using the VS2005 setup project.

In the 'File System' I have added a custom folder named 'Matlab Runtime' and
set its DefaultLoation to '[ProgramFilesFolder]\MatlabRuntime'.

I wish to use this folder as an argument to a custom action. the custom
action is to execute en exe file that takes the above folder path as an
argument.
I tried to put the custom folder name as 'Matlab Runtime' or '[Matlab
Runtime]' or "Matlab Runtime"
but non of them works.

How can I use the custom folder as an argument to a custom action as I
described in here?
