How do you change the friggin TARGETDIR property in a Web App setup project?

  1. This is pissing me off. The web app setup project is great except for
    one stupid limitiation. You can't specify the target directory for
    the virtual folder. What is up with that? I've been reading posts
    and documentation that it works that way by design, and I'm having a
    hard time believing there isn't a workaround for this.

    What I need is very simple. You have the following options in a Web
    App setup UI dialog

    * Port
    * Virtual Folder Name

    I want to add another text box for the user to specify the target
    directory, and that value stick when the setup completes. I know that
    it uses the TARGETDIR property, but how can I override this with a
    value the user enteres during setup?

    Any help on this would be appreciated.
