TempFolder property

The installer sets the TempFolder property to the full path to the Temp folder.

Authors should not need to set the TempFolder property. Windows Installer uses the GetTempPath function to retrieve the path of the directory designated for temporary files and to set this property.


A common value for this property is C:\Temp.
