I had a .bat file that I needed to run after installation, and could not get the LaunchAppAndWait function to work correctly on XP. I created a Custom Action which I call, which runs a VBScriptCode segment stored in my custom actions. I need to passin|read my INSTALLDIR? How can I accomplish this?
Thank you very much

I believe what you're looking for is to retrieve the property value using something along the lines of:

path = session.property("INSTALLDIR")

For running batch file on WinXP and on Win2000

The command below execute cmd.exe and passed the name of batch file without file extension. i.e. the file name is install.bat

LaunchAppAndWait ("cmd.exe", "/c cmd /c install",WAIT|LAAW_OPTION_HIDDEN)

Point ur directory to the source location of the batch file (where install.bat resides).
