Description

Setup folder URL

Specifies a URL where the installer and associated files are located. A user can install your application from the specified URL.

Multiple files will be located in the specified location, so the URL should specify a folder rather than a specific file (for example, http://computername/Application1, not http://computername/Application1/setup.exe).

Windows Installer upgrade folder URL

Specifies a URL where the Windows Installer executable files (Instmsia.exe and Instmsiw.exe) are available for download. If the correct version of Windows Installer is not installed on the user's computer, it can be downloaded from the specified Web site.

Multiple files may be located in the specified location, so the URL should specify a folder rather than a specific file (for example, http://computername/Components, not http://computername/Components/Instmsia.exe).

NoteNote
If this field is left blank, the Windows Installer executable files should be installed in the location specified by the Setup folder URL.
