Well, you could try to change the environment variable for the temp folder (try echo %temp% in a command window to see what it is now), but if it's a badly written installer program that won't work.
It might be better to free some space on the c:-drive. Things to try:
- ccleaner in its default settings
- disable System Restore and enable again: this cleans the system restore area. Might easily give you 5 GB of space.
I got a c: drive just jammed with good stuff.
I had a F: drive devoted to linux but I repartitioned 80MB to WinXP but my problem is when I download a large program like
Pinnacle Studio HD it extracts from the Download file to the Temp file on the C: drive before it builds on the F: drive. The C: doesn't have the room for the 3GB program.
I need for the installer to extract in F: then build in F:. I know I should buy a TB drive but for my particular contract in a stated time frame I had to buy the program first. As for moving 3GB from c: to F: I have programs that I would lose activation.(e,g. Final Draft can I for example get into the installer via settings on the control panel?
