When inputting a path such as C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ as a registry value, it is not replaced with the property CommonAppDataFolder as expected. Instead it is replaced with AppDataFolder.
1. Create a new .WSI 2. Add registry key with the following values: Operation: Create/update key and value Root: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Key: Software\test Value Name: test Data Value: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data Data Type: String 3. Click OK.
After clicking OK, the value is replaced with [AppDataFolder]. However, the AppDataFolder property resolves to the Application Data folder for the current user and not for All Users.
This has been fixed for Wise Package Studio 7 SP3 and will be fixed for the next release of Wise Installation Studio.
Workaround: Manually change the value from [AppDataFolder] to [CommonAppDataFolder]
Applies To Wise for Windows Installer 6.x Wise Installation Studio 7.0 Wise Package Studio 7.0
