Some software installers doesn’t give you the option to choose on where you want to put the installation files other than the drive where your operating system is located, (drive C: for most of us)
but by using a simple registry hack, you can change the default installation folder which is “C:\Program Files” to the drive letter of your choice,
some small applications can do this, but for now, I’ll teach you how to achieve this task by simply editing the registry,
Warning: modification of registry can cause irreversible damage to your operating system, use this information at your own risk.
It is better to backup your registry first before doing anything on it , and here’s how I do it.
Open Backup utility> Start> Run> type ntbackup > click ok
or you can also do this by going to,
Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> click Backup
click backup wizard > next> only backup the system state data,
choose a file destination and name, and when a problem occurs after you’ve edited the registry, you can restore it later to its original setting by using the backup you’ve just created.
Changing Default Installation Path
(I’m using win xp, this may not work on other versions of windows)
Step1: Open regedit, go to START> RUN > type in REGEDIT (press ok)
Step2: go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE> SOFTWARE> MICROSOFT> WINDOWS> CURRENTVERSION
Step3: (at the right side) look for ProgramFilesDir , right click on it and select modify,
then change the C:\Program Files to the drive letter of your choice
example: E:\Program Files ,
on whether you can use a different folder name, instead of “Program Files” , I’ve already tried it, and the default installation still goes to the program files folder and not on my custom folder. so let’s keep it that way.
after you’re done editing the registry, restart your computer for the change to take effect,
and then you’ll can see that windows already created a new program files folder in that drive letter, you can also see that other windows bundled softwares like media player is also inside your new program files folder, but its normal.
now Install grand chase , or any other software that doesn’t have the file destination option.
you can keep it that way for future software installations or change it back to its original setting using the same registry editing steps above.
