I developed one utility for changing the format of a specific file to the required format. Now i am preparing the setup file for this utility. For preparing the setup file i m using Visual Studio 2005 >> Setup and Deployment.


Problem:
While installing the setup, i have given an option to the user to select the location where he wants to install the utility.  For adding some functionality i have to update the system registry with the path where the utility is getting installed. All this i want to perform at the time of installation only.
Now my question is how to get the path where the utility is installing, so that the setup can use the same path for updating the registry.

Every user will choose different path for installing the utility.

Please help me out with this. I am struggling with this problem form the last 3 days.

Thanks.
