.msi RootDrive

I need to re-configure a package. I'm told this has to be off the root of C:. I Installed to "programfilesfolder". There is a property for "RootDrive" but nothing in the directory table to establish this. What can I add to the directory table to re-route the software from programfilesfolder to C:\<myappname>.

The simplest route is to change the folder which is assigned the name/property INSTALLDIR. You'll need to re-jig other directories which have INSTALLDIR as their parent folder.

ROOTDRIVE is used to direct an install to a drive other than the one with the most free space (which the Windows Installer engine defaults to using.)
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
