Hello I need to find the location of setup.exe on the users machine. SRCDIR does not work as it points to a temporary directory... this is useless for me. I have an MSI file which setup.exe will launch in the same directory as the setup executable. I just need to launch the external MSI file from the MSI. Placing the MSI file in the supportdir is also impractical for me, so I'm a bit stuck at the moment :(

I guess this is hopeless... I tried using a few functions from kernel32.dll and they don't seem to help (they're process based for the most part - and the process from which the call orignates is not setup.exe but the IS Script Engine). So I have to pretty much draw the conclusion that you can never actually know where setup.exe is being executed from on the users machine.
