Can't Change Installation Drive for new install of Visual Studio Professional 2005

P: n/a


--

I am trying to install the MSDN version of Visual Studio Professional
2005 and the goddamn install won't let me change the installation drive
-- it shows that everything will be installed to C: but I don't have
enough space on C and I want to install to a different hard-drive but
the damn install doesn't allow me to change the drive.

Has anyone experienced this before????

HELP PLEASE!

Hi,

If install the default components you can not select the install
path. Try clicking on the options to select components to install. I think
you can select the path then.

Thanks Ken, well, here's where it gets weird again -- I can change the
path for some components, but not all (for example C++ I can change the
location for, but not VB) -- however I was able to move enough
components that I had enough space on my C drive.

Thanks again,

Ken

Found out why I was having problems changing locations even after Ken's
help -- I wasn't installing VS.NET 2005 , I was installing VS.NET Pro
2002!!!! I downloaded the wrong one ...

Thanks again all!
All seems well now...
