How do I change the install folder?

The install folder is %LocalAppData%\Programs\EmEditor, and we don’t recommend changing the install folder.

However, if you really need to change the install folder, you can change the folder by using the APPDIR option:

msiexec /i emed64_24.2.0.msi APPDIR="C:\App\EmEditor"

You will need to use this command line every time you update EmEditor in the future. The Update Checker will revert the install path to the default path.

If you need to specify C:\Program Files or any other folder that a user doesn’t have write privileges for, you will need to run this command from Command Prompt run as Administrator.
