Issue: I want to change the destination folder for components, depending on selcetions made by the User during the installation.

Question: Is it possible to overwrite/change the destination folder of a component during the installtion.

in the components properties set some special targetdir like <MYTARGETDIR> or <COMPONENT_1_DIR> ...
Now you can set this target directory to the selcetion (szLocation) just before using ComponentMoveData.
Code Sample
ComponentSetTarget( MEDIA, "<MYTARGETDIR>", szLocation );
nResult = ComponentMoveData( MEDIA, nDisk, 0 );
