Install software on a path other than C via Software distribution


I’ve just created a software package and want to push it on an endpoint but the installation should be done on the drive other than C.
Can anyone help me out?

Best Regards

Is it an MSI installer, or another type of installer?

You need to determine how the installer accepts the location of install on the command line. For an MSI I believe it is INSTALLDIR but for other installers it varies.


I’m new to software distribution. I’ve some sort of working on that and It seems that if there was a registry value that contained the path to the application, I could use an embedded relevance expression to look up the value then run it. Not sure if it is possible to install a software on a drive other than C.

You definitely can install software on a drive other than C.

It has nothing to do with the registry.

You would need to make a custom action that installs to a drive other than C using a command line parameter.

I don’t use SWD at all, so I have no clue how to do it in that context, I just know it can be done with a custom Fixlet/Task.

Thanks Friend. :smile:
