  • Hello,

    I would like to install VS2015 in a drive different than C:. The problem is that when I run the installer, I can change instalation features, but I can't chage instalation path. The change path button is disabled and the path's input is disabled also.

    Besides I have tryied to install VS from console shell but the path is also set to C:.

    The command is >d:\vs_enterprise.exe /CustomInstallPath "F:\My new VS Dir" /full

    Can somebody help me? Thanks in advance.

  • I found the solution in this forum. The problem is that I canceled a VS2015 installation because I didn’t change the default installation drive. Although the installation was canceled some components remained in my system (In the default installation drive) so I couldn’t change the installation path in the next installations. In order to solve this you must uninstall VS2015 completely through the console with this command: D:\vs_enterprise.exe /uninstall /force

    And then you can install  VS2015 again in any path :) .
