If you want to change the default installation location for the ConceptDraw software products it is easy to select an alternate location for installation. When the install screen “Type of installation” appears select Custom, and then in the install screen “Application(s) location” it is possible to then browse for the directory where you want to install ConceptDraw products. If you want to specify a directory to install in that has not been created, it is easy to specify the new folder by typing the folders path into the browse window. For instance “e:ConceptDraw” would build a folder named “ConceptDraw” on your E: drive and then install the ConceptDraw applications you specified.
