Existing package, different install path?

Hey guys,

Question: I have an existing package that curretly installs itself in the C:\Program Files folder... Now, we have a specific case where this package would need to be installed in the D drive, under Program Files. Can I reuse the same package to accomplish this?

Sure, but it depends on how you deploy. If you are able to specify a command line argument, add the argument 'ROOTDRIVE="D:"'

The ROOTDRIVE property must be terminated with a \

That easy?

as in something like:

msiexec /i "path\mymsi.msi" ROOTDRIVE="D:\" /qb


If so, it's not working.... ? is it because the package was made via capture? Or it shouldn't impact anything?

Good catch, JB. Have a gold star :)

Your command line arguments are spot-on. It shouldn't make any difference if you have a capture. Run the install with a verbose log. That'll show you to which paths the various properties are being resolved.
