Hi ,

I have created a exe named (myproject.exe) using installshield 6.2.

Is it possible to get the exe name ("myproject") while running that myproject.exe

I need to pass this value in post install .

Thanks in advance

I think the system variable PACKAGE_LOCATION contains the file name (which path). But I'm not sure if it existed in version 6.

Unfortunately that system variable does not exist in IS6 Stefan and I don't see one that contains such information.
