    Arrow Target Drive Changed From C: to D:

    Hello.

    I have a question for the community.

    My installation gets put on the D: drive for my clients occasionally when I want it to stay on the C: drive. I would prefer to avoid "hard coding" the targetdir for the obvious reasons, if possible.

    Is there a way I can keep dynamic links, avoid hard coding, etc. but ensure that the targetdir remains on the C: drive? Or at least give the user the control to choose, so I can tell them to always pick the C: drive?

    Also, how is the MSI deciding to install to D: instead of C:? Is it choosing based on free drive space, etc?

    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    Hi

    Yes, it'll be choosing based on the hard disk with the most free space. It's related to the way your TARGETDIR is resolving.

    check out ROOTDRIVE property..

    By adding a ROOTDRIVE property with a value of C:\ will force the msi to always install to C:
