Environment Variable: MAKEMSI_USER_FILES_PATH

The variable is "PATH" like and specifies one or more directories that MAKEMSI should search for files such as headers.

If a "directory" starts with a "*" then it is actually a reference to another environment variable which will be expanded.

If you create your own header files (such as "ME.MMH" front ends) you really don't wish to have to hard code the location in each ".MM" file, this environment variable is the easiest way to configure the information. The value in this environment variable is passed to PPWIZARD via the "/IncludePath" switch.

One possible example of how it might look and be set:

SET MAKEMSI_USER_FILES_PATH=C:\SupportDir1;S:\SupportDir2;*PATH
