Visual Studio .NET installation to a different drive letter:
There was a previous question asked and the answer did not help.
Changed the install path to f:, change environment variables to f:, and f:program files. And yet VS.NET still wants to install things to c:.
I purposely partitioned my drives so I could control things with ease, and in case of crashes or viruses and such, things could be moved, and reinstalled without issues.
So my question is: Taking the above into account, how do I install VB.NET onto a different partition/drive, and not have anything go to c: put the shortcuts for the program locations?
If you are trying to get Visual Studio to *not* install anything into your <OS Drive>:Program Files directory, there is no way to do that. I know, it's a hassle, but portions of the installation are hard coded to go there and there's nothing we can do about it.
