When using the delivered `psft-dpk-setup.ps1` bootstrap script that comes with 8.55.05 in order to perform the installation.

When running "puppet apply .\site.pp" the DPK scripts fail if the base folder doesn't exist.

There are two scenarios where this issue was encountered :

1. The base folder requested during the bootstrap script didn't exist, and the DPK failed.
2. We changed a folder path in "psft_customizations.yaml" for the Oracle client (to e:\oracle), and the DPK failed because e:\oracle wasn't created.

In both cases, the scripts should create the necessary folders.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. In the bootstrap script, specify a base folder that doesn't exist on the server. When the bootstrap script starts Puppet, the installation will fail.
2. Stop the bootstrap script at the "Default initialization" question. In the "psft_customizations.yaml" file, add this line: "tuxedo_location: e:/oracle/tuxedo". But don't create the folder "e:/oracle". When you run "puppet apply site.pp" the installation will fail.
