Change the Install Folder

by Mark Stefanchuk,

Yes, it is possible to change the product folder for PhotogeoDWG. You have to do this after you run the Exchange Apps Store msi package, but it’s really easy.

Install PhotogeoDWG

As you can see there isn’t a way to change the install folder before you click “Install Now”. But, you can change the location after install. If you are using PhotogeoDWG with AutoCAD2013 the plugin will autoload if it resides in the Roaming\Autodesk folder, the Program Files\Autodesk folder, or the ProgramData\Autodesk folder. The msi package will install the to the Roaming\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\CMRI_Photogeo.bundle folder. But, if you want all users to be able to have access to this plugin without having to install it a bunch of times, then just move the Roaming\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\CMRI_Photogeo.bundle to Program Files\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\CMRI_Photogeo.bundle. That’s all you have to do. AutoCAD will take care of the rest.
