Do we have any control over where the application gets installed

[ Edited ]

 

Hi, i want my application to be installed in a particular folder,  so that i can keep all the cached Images in the same folder. And  when the user uninstalls the application, the entire folder be deleted.

Re: Do we have any control over where the application gets installed

the theme determines where downloaded applications are placed by default. i don't think switching the theme moves anything around, but i don't have much experience theme-wise.
