I need to validate the destination path. Here is the scenario.

Suppose the user gives c:\FolderName, then the installation happens in the specified folder.

But if he gives c:FolderName, the installation happens in the WINNT folder.

how can i prevent this?

Well you could do something as simple as call ExistsDir to see if the destination exists.

If it doesn't, then call CreateDir and check the result as it will fail if the path is illegal/invalid.
