Hi, if you want to install Nokia Ovi Suite to for example D: drive, to directory "D:\Program files", you could start installation application from command line following way:
Nokia_Ovi_Suite_webinstaller_all.exe /TARGET="D:\Program files\NokiaOviSuite"
This would create a new folder "NokiaOviSuite" under D:\Program files\ and install Nokia Ovi Suite there.
you may find it working in following steps.
go to start> Run> type cmd > click ok
you will get command prompt (in most cases a black color window). copy the .Ovi suite installer in D:/ drive (
(just to avoid writing path on the command prompt)
Now type D: and hit enter key
now type the above command, within a moment installation will begin.
I've been trying this - it does not work on MS Vista. I get the command prompt OK but the installer always reverts to c:\. (I have my hard drive partitioned into c:\ & d:\ to make work & home back-ups easier). If Nokia expect me to use OVI then they can make it possible to install on my PC.
Why does OVI not give you a choice of installation location the way that PC Suite does? This is a really amateur effort by Nokia.
Nokia have forgotten that a phone is a phone. I can live without all the OVI trash that is being forced on us. How much data are Nokia collecting each time OVI is started?
Has anyone found a way to install OVI suite into a different folder/directory from the default on C:?
I tried the above command, but it does not work and still installs on C:, giving no options to install elsewhere. Given how big the intsallation is, I have no room for it on C:
All I want to do is add another country's map to Ovi Maps on my phone and I am forced to install OVI.
change your windows default installation directory. For example: by default it is set to C:\Program File and you want to make it to D:\Apps.
For that do these followings:
1. Go to Run menu, and type regedit and press Enter.
2. Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr
2. Find ProgramFilesDir whose default should be C:\Program Files
3. Change this to D:\Apps.
Restart your windows and then install the Nokia Ovi Suite.
