    Installing the evaluation edition, I tried to do a custom install and put the websites folder underneath my Interpub folder.

    The install failed reporting it couldn't find c:\program files ...\websites.

    Looks like that was missed in the last MSI build, and its important to me as I don't want to host a site under program files.

    Thanks.

    Hi Chris,

    Unfortunately, we can’t reproduce this behavior. Could you please give us more details how to reproduce this problem (for example your Windows version and screenshots of the error) and we will try to figure out what is wrong?

    Thanks in advance and we are looking forward to your reply.

    Best wishes,

    -choose custom install.
    -click websites.
    -click change.
    -select a folder other than program files/telerik/websites (such as /inetpub/websites/

    contine through install process.

    Hello viscious,

    Unfortunately it is not possible to change the location of the websites folder. The installer always searches for it in the main folder where Sitefinity is installed.
    If you want to create a project in another directory, you have to do it manually. Just copy the content of the /Projectmanager/EmptyProject folder to the new location, set the necessary permissions (make sure you allow full control for the ASPNET account), and then create a new virtual directory in IIS pointing to your new folder. This project will not appear in the project manager, though. To list it there, simply add a record for it in /ProjectManager/App_Data/Projects.xml.
