Change application setup location from Local to Roaming RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have an application that by default got installed to:

    C:\Users\user1\AppData\Local\WPC\ContextXfer\com.native.app\10.0.0045

    but we need to change the installation directory to:

    C:\Users\user1\AppData\Roaming\WPC\ContextXfer\com.native.app\10.0.0045

    Is that a safe procedure ?  

    Thanks.

  • I see many programs use only Roaming and not Local. Who makes this program?

  • Thank you for your reply.

    this was regarding an add-on that push installation files to Local directory under AppData, but with roaming profiles the user has to re-install the add-on after each log-off. moving the files to roaming wasn't helpful and we need to redesign the add-on.

    the operation was safe because it is just an add-on.

    thanks again,

    Best Regards,
