How to change the DeskDirector install location
OUTDATED ARTICLE: REFERS TO OLD CLIENT CONSOLE
In some circumstances you might want to change the location where the DeskDirector Client Console installs itself.
The default location is <Program Files Folder>\DeskDirector where <Program Files Folder> is usually C:\Program Files (x86)
To change this during the install you will need to pass the APPDIR variable into the MSI command line.
The syntax is either the following;
msiexec /qn /i <LOCATION OF MSI> APPDIR="<INSTALL PATH>"
<LOCATION OF MSI>
Where <LOCATION OF MSI> is the location of the MSI installer. e.g. C:\Temp\DeskDirector.Client_DeskDirector_13.2.1.msi
and <INSTALL PATH> is where you want to install DeskDirector e.g. C:\My Custom Location
Here is what that would look like for example
msiexec /qn /i C:\Temp\DeskDirector.Client_DeskDirector_13.2.1.msi APPDIR="C:\My Custom Location"
C:\Temp\DeskDirector.Client_DeskDirector_13.2.1.msi /qn APPDIR="C:\My Custom Location"
Incidentally the /qn switch causes DeskDirector not to show a user interface.
