InstallShield Express:How can I set the INSTALLDIR value from the registry? I used a InstallShield Express Help, but the described steps weren't work properly.

I don't have 3.5 at hand so I'm not sure what they say in the help.
What you need to do is set up entries in the AppSearch and RegLocator tables. In Express 3.5 there is no built in support for this, so you would have to post-process your msi file with Orca.

Alternatively you could upgrade to Express 4 which has a System Search Wizard for this purpose.
