Windows PC | How to install the software on my D:\ drive

Modified on Wed, 18 Nov, 2020 at 6:00 AM

Applies to :

  • I want to install the software on my D:\ drive, but the installer does not allow me to select another location
  • PILOTLOG does not find the default Application Data Directory, which is stored on my D:\ drive

The Windows Installer package is preset to the default Windows User directory.  Typically, the software is installed in the following folder :  C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming  (you can copy that link and paste it in the address bar of the Windows File Explorer)

During installation, you may have opted to share the application with all users of the desktop.  In that scenario, the software was installed in the public folder :    C:\Users\%public%\AppData\Roaming

How to move the application to another directory ?

After installation, you can move the PILOTLOG folder to another location, as follows :

  1. Open the default User directory with the Windows File Explorer, typically :  C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming

  2. Look for PILOTLOG and cut the entire folder (keyboard shortcut CTRL X )

  3. Navigate to your D: drive or any other location

  4. Paste the logbook application folder  (keyboard shortcut CTRL V )

  5. Right-mouse click the desktop icon and select properties :

    6. change the target with the new location and further to the PILOTLOG.exe
