Changing Client Components location issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • When running the GUI client, I chose to install the SQL Server 2005 'Client Components' on F:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server, the installation put over 700MB of files on my C: drive, but there were less than 400MB of files in the location I specified. Only about 1/2 of the files I expected were put in the location I specified.


    How can I redirect all of the 'shared' files and other misc. development pieces to install somewhere other than my boot drive? There is no way to specify this when using the GUI, can it be done with a command line install?
