Is it possible to change location of Windows/Installer folder


Recommended Posts

I'm talking about changing default location of folder which is C:\WINDOWS\Installer (note that the folder is hidden by default) after normal Windows installation.

Now if you use many programs this folder grows very large since it contains third party Installers and Software Patches. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Installer for details.

I use the following partitioning scheme and instead of having C:\WINDOWS\Installer I would like to have D:\Installer

C: Windows

D: Programs (Program Files default location is set to here)

E: Users (Documents and Settings default location is set to here)
