Installing ON1 Photo 10 on D: drive
Due to the unexpected and sudden demise of my pc I need to install ON1 Photo 10 on my new machine.
The new pc has a 128Gb SSD containing the operating system, and to keep as much as possible off this SDD
I wish to install to my D: drive (internal SATA)
When installing ON1 Photo 10 I could not see an option to specify the destination drive. Is it possible to install
to a drive other than C: ? If so, where is the option to do this ?
I don't see any options to change the install drive. Photo Raw takes about 200mb on my PC. You can move the cache and scratch to E: in the options after the install.0
Thanks for the reply. I managed to sort it out, however. After web search I changed the installation folders in the registry to point at the one I wished to use. Installing ON1 10 then created a folder in C;\Program Files (x86) of 8.11 Mb and the program itself on my D: drive which is where I wanted it.0
Good tip. If there is some documentation about it, can you add a link here?
Anyone reading this that doesn't know how to use the registry should not try it. You can seriously mess up your PC.1
Sorry, I should have done that.
The link is
However, the caveat is that Microsoft does not support changing it in this way, as in
So it should only be done temporarily while installing, then the registry value changed back.
I agree, any changes to the registry should be undertaken with great care after making a complete registry backup
because there is a risk of completely screwing up your machine.0
Thanks Stuart. Good to know.0
I too have the same issue but I am skeptical of changing the registry. Does on1 have a better solution? Most installation have a screen where you can go back and change the destination drive and or folder to where you want the program installed. Why is not an easy solution?0
Good lord, what is this? 1990? How can a company in this day and age, not allow you to pick the drive where you install their software?!? I'm a trial user who wants to give this a run, but I'm tempted to skip it altogether if their setup is this short-sighted.
Many users, myself included, run an SSD as their C: drive that is much smaller than their SATA D: or E drives. For ON1 to just assume that it is OK to install to C: is shocking to say the least and a huge oversight on their part.0
