WindowsVolume property

The installer sets the WindowsVolume property to the volume of the windows folder. The property always ends with a backslash. This can be used to set the default location to the volume the Windows folder is on because the ROOTDRIVE property does not necessarily equal this drive.


Do not use the WindowsVolume property in the Directory column of the Directory table. The WindowsFolder property contains the path to the Windows folder.
