Windows 7: Avoid use of C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Installations

25 Jun 2010   #1

Windows 7
Avoid use of C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Installations

I find that software installs create a long named directory under c:\windows\downloaded Installations, and puts an msi file there.

I am creating a Foxpro app that wants to write the file there, adn have some PCs that are locked down under the Windows directory.

Is there any way to avoid the need to put that file there? Or re-direct it to another folder?
