Changing the default Location installation for Windows Live Messen

    I want to install the latest Windows Live Messenger default location path and
    NOT have it go to by default into my Local C:\, but rather in another
    partition, in this example my D:\ on my laptop to save room on the default
    Local C:\ drive.

    When I begin the installation of the latest version of Live messenger, it
    does not provide the option of where I want to install it but assumes the
    Local C:\ drive.

    How can I change the default location for Windows Live Messenger in another
    place other than my Local C:\ drive?

    Thank you...

  2. Greetings,

    What you can do is simply let it install to C and then move the folder over to D after
    installing. You'll have to make a new shortcut of course.
