Another standart destination for Program Files

Recommended Posts


You can do it in your winnt.sif under the section unattended:

[Unattended]
   ProgramFilesDir="D:\Program Files"
   CommonProgramFilesDir="D:\Program Files\Common Files"

BUT you must format your D: drive BEFORE you install because only the destination drive of the Windows folder get formated.

Believe me, it will halt the installation process early if there is no D: drive formatted :yes:

The cool thing about that is when you install software later on your computer, they automaticaly points to D:\Program Files without having to change the destination directory manualy during an installation! Only old software installer still point to C:\Program File by default.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention that all the Windows programs (that are installed in C:\Program Files normally) will also go there (ie: Internet Explorer, Movie Maker, MSN Messenger, etc.)
