Okay, I have searched everywhere looking for an answer to this problem, but I haven't found one yet.

I am trying to launch an executable file in a custom action that takes parameters into it. I was wondering if anybody knows how to put variables into the command-line parameters???

Here's what I have:
Type: 82
Source: F24019_ChangingValues.exe
Target: I want to be able to put a variable (either a Property or a tuple from the String Table).

The Variable will be part of a directory, but not a full directory. So if I use a MsiSetTargetPath() function, an error comes up saying invalid directory.

Please, Any ideas or suggestions??

for instance will pass the value of property INSTALLDIR on the command line to your exe.
