    Default Live Client Installation, non-default location

    When trying to install the client to a non-default location (ie, not c:\Program Files\RIFT Game) the installer hangs and provides no feedback. I attempted this twice, same result. Third time I attempted with the default settings and was able to install successfully, but I do not have enough room on that drive for a game, especially a large MMO like RIFT. It is there really just for the OS for quick recoveries in case of a complete system melt down.

    OS: Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
    Default install location: C:\Program Files (x86)\RIFT Game
    My preferred install location: F:\Games\RIFT (although the installer forces the "\RIFT Game" folder, NOT COOL)

    Am attempting this with just moving the default folder into this location and hoping that there aren't any goofy registry keys preventing playing from this location.

    Default

    So far seems fine, will report again after I am able to actually begin download.

    Moved my "C:\Program Files (x86)\RIFT Game" to "F:\Games\RIFT".

    Worst case scenario you create a juntion point.

    But you should be fine as you are for a MMO.
