This panel allows the user to modify the default installation path on the target computer.

Example definition


IzPack offers the possibility to set a list of default installation directories depending on the target installation platform. When the compiled installer is executed, IzPack chooses the one matching the assigned platform. This can be achieved by explicitly setting variables with the prefix: TargetPanel.dirIzPack recognizes this as a built-in variable which can be user-modified.

 For a more detailed description see Setting Default Installation Directories.
