Why do you imagine any reply would be different from the reply you got when you asked virtually the same question on Wednesday??????

Yes, 99% of the MSI's are handled the same way. INSTALLDIR=D:\.... or ROOTDRIVE=D:\ should do the trick.

TARGETDIR is usually not used for this. That's probably the 1% exception.

Given your AppDeploy nickname, can we assume you're working for HP?
