I have been trying to install a game on the laptop in the living room, but to no avail. I keep getting a message saying there isn't sufficient space left. This is true, for drive D at least. Drive C however, has over 2 GB space left. I would like to install the game in C. You know, sometimes you get to choose the location you want to save it to. However, whenever I double click on the .EXE it just says I don't have sufficient space.

Is there a way to change the drive where things automatically get installed to? because it seems as though the laptop is trying to install everything to drive D ( insufficient space), blatantly ignoring drive C ( which does have sufficient space).

Before u finish clicking next, after you accepted the terms and conditions of the game, click browse and select a new location for the game to be installed e.g D:/Program Files, if this location is not there you are able to create this.

the thing is, I do not get the NEXT thing to click on. After double clicking the .exe the setup wizard says it's preparing the installation.. and then I get prompted there's insufficient space.

Maplestory. I have installed it many times on the pc. And just like other games I do get to choose the directory, however, this isn't the case on the laptop . I thought it was because the laptop installs everything on drive D by default.

the only way possible to do this, is to cut and paste an existing file from C to D then install Maplestory with success.... Sorry, but its not possible.

D has +/-15 mb left. so if I were to copy some stuff of D and put it on C instead .. it would work. Thanks, I am going to try it immediately!

It's usually at C:\Windows. If the Windows installation was not on C:, then it would explain things being installed on D: drive.

Anyways, most games should allow you to change the directory of the installation, regardless of machine.
