How does one add a file or directory of files to the root of a portal when installing a module via the DNN manifest file. I have several example files I want to place either in the root or in a subdirectory.
I tried to search for the example I though was in the forums but just could not find it.
Thanks in advance - Paul.

I have reviewed Scott McCulloch article on DNN manifest files and that is close to what I need. He references the resourcefile, but I'm not sure where this data will be located and how much of a directory path I can supply in the zip file.
Any additonal details/suggestion on loading support files that the user can access would be appreciated.

When adding the file to the zip, you want to check the "save full path info". I learned this by accident. When packing up 229 image files for the Visitor Counter program (http://dnndev.icpconline.com), I mistakenly
checked this option and learned that the images were installed in folder specified in the ZIP path. I am using Winzip 9.0. I do not know if version earlier then 9 has this option.

Thanks for the suggestion. I use several bat files to build the zip. I actually use PKZip command line version - free and fast.
What I am looking for is a way to place files into the Portal directory using the .DNN manifest file. There is the <Path> element, but I believe this is relative to the DesktopModules directory.
I have some example files that I want the user to access. I can place them in the DesktopModules directory and ask the user to move them, but I thought there might be another way.
Thanks again... Paul.
