I am creating setup project installer for WPF application. What I want is to add some JARService folder (which contains some .jar files) outside of the ApplicationFolder so that my hierarchy will be something like:
Lets say if I am installing WPF application in D:\MyFolder\WPFApp folder path then I want setup project to create extrenal folder in such a way to have D:\MyFolder\ExternalFOlder\.

How to achieve this? Any help would be appreciable.

I have solved this myself by creating one Custom Folder which I want to be installed as external folder. The default location for this custom folder I kept to [TARGETDIR]\ExternalFolderName so that folder gets created. And I have written one Custom Action to read from source location and copy it to external location and then deleted the source folder.
