Web Platform Installer / Change Install Drive / Report Require Disk Space RRS feed

  • Question

  • User350178660 posted

    I want to install these:

    ASP.NET Web Framework
    Visual Studio Express Development Tool
    IIS Web Server
    SQL Server Express Database

    • ASP.NET Web Framework
    • Visual Studio Express Development Tool
    • IIS Web Server
    • SQL Server Express Database

    I know that some things have to be installed on the same drive where the OS is installed, fine.

    BUT:

    • How can I install any of these to a drive other than the OS drive ( C: in my case ).
    • How much disk space is required for each?


    I attempted to install these, but at no time was I given the option to change the install location.  Also, before installing, the "Web Platform Installer" did not warn me of the lack of required disk space.  Furthermore, after cancelling the installation, at least one item did not cancel install; .NET Framework 4.  The failure for this installer to offer the option to install on another drive and the failure to display required disk space and not to warn the user of lack of disk space can only demonstrate why some might have concerns using this product.

    I still wish to use this product, but come on!  How can I control install location?  How much space is required?

    Anyone know?
