Default install folder

How do I get Labview to install on a different drive? I have a brand new msata ssd as my D, but there doesn't seem to be anyway to have the NI package manager choose a different location that isn't my ancient spinning rust C drive.

As I recall (having installed multiple versions of LabVIEW, including LabVIEW 2019, in the past month), I recall seeing a screen with the default locations pop up around the time that the "License Approval" pop-ups come (it might even be a part of that pop-up, sorry that I didn't pay closer attention to it).

Hi AndersWSP,


I think this is what you're looking for. Let me know if it works for you:

Sigh, NIPM has taken over another "rarely-used, but occasionally vital" aspect of LabVIEW Installation and rendered it "problematic" for experienced users (anything requiring a Registry Edit, particularly before the fact, strikes me as exceedingly dangerous!).
