Changing Install Directory

HELP....I have a vendor's MSI that installs to C:\Program File by default.
How do I change it to make it install to D:\Programs.

I can create an MST or directly modify the MSI.

there is a porperty for ROOTDIR. this property defines to which drive the application will get installed. If this porperty is not set by default it will install to the drive which has the maximum available space (if the machine has drives other than C:)

So it you want to install the application to D:\ all you need to do is add a new property in property table as ROOTDIR and give the value as D:\. but then you need to ensure that the machine on which you want to install the application must have D:\ partetion.

Hope this works out for you.
