I want to write the location of my install to the uninstall properties in the registry. The Platform SDK talks about using ARPINSTALLLOCATION property to do this. I am setting the ARPINSTALLLOCATION to the TARGETDIR using Custom Action 51 as told. But after installing product, the value is not written to the registry. But on checking the install log it shows the value of the property ARPINSTALLLOCATION set to the TARGETDIR as I wanted, but I dont see the value being displayed in the registry. If someone can help me with this...

Thank you in advance.

As far as I know this should be done automatically if you are using Installshield Developer 8. Are you using this version?
