Specify install location?


The Rhino 5 evaluation installer wizard does not ask for the install location (or I am missing it). How can I specify that I want to install to drive D:?

Hi feklee,

I think Rhino has some elements which must reside on the C drive. The other @brian knows more here and may be able to explain if it’s possible to do what you want. I don’t believe it is though as far as I know.

Yes, right now the eval only installs on the default system drive. If you want me to show you how to install in a different folder using a command line, I’m happy to do that.


@brian If you could show that, it would be great!

OK, you’ll need to uninstall first, and then run the installer using the following command line:

msiexec /i “full path to msi file” FOLDER=“D:\Program Files\Rhinoceros 5”

Let me know if you need more details than that.


Thanks @brian! The exact command that I successfully used (German system):

msiexec /i C:\Temp\rh50EvaluationTimed_x86_en-us_5.4.30524.11065.msi FOLDER="D:\Programme\Rhinoceros 5"

Interestingly, the Flamingo nXt eval installer allows specification of the install location from the graphical wizard.
