Why Program File(86)

Wed Aug 10, 2022 4:25 pm

Hey

Why does the installer persist in placing my files in Program Files (86) when i have specifically set them to be in Program files? I need a way for force the files in Program files and not (86)

Thanks

Hello,

That happens because your package type is probably set to "32-bit", instead of "64-bit" (in "Install Parameters" page).

When this happens, on a 64-bit machine, the setup will choose the 32-bit location. This, in our case, is the Program Files(x86) folder.

Best regards,
