Where does TSNet go on Windows standalone?

I think I have answered my own question - the ‘Externals’ folder is created by the LC Standalone Maker, so it’s Inno Setup that’s the problem. The issue is that the Wizard which I’ve always used to create installers with Inno Setup lacks an option to specify a folder (in our case ‘Externals' within the program directory to put DLLs etc in; but it can be done by editing the script directly. Probably nobody else wants to know the detail, but if the do, just ask.

When I do the install, somehow the actual tsNet DLL finds itself in a folder called ‘Externals’ within the app’s folder, which itself is within the Windows Program directory. I didn’t deliberately create the Externals folder.
