PRA: Setup Ignores $(AppPath); Puts Files in MS-SETUP.T
Article ID: Q103995

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Access Distribution Kit version 1.1
When you run the Microsoft Access Distribution Kit (ADK) Setup program and specify that you want to install the files to a particular directory, all files except SYSTEM.MDA and MSACCESS.REG are copied to the MS-SETUP.T subdirectory instead.
This problem occurs because the Setup program is case-sensitive. If the $(AppPath) information file token is either misspelled or capitalized incorrectly [for example, $(APPPath) instead of $(AppPath)], Setup does not recognize the misspelled or wrongly capitalized token. By default, it copies all files to the current directory, which is MS-SETUP.T.
Be sure that the $(AppPath) information file token is spelled correctly and capitalized as shown.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft Access Distribution Kit version 1.1. This problem no longer occurs in the Microsoft Access Developer's Toolkit version 2.0.
