The default installation folder of a Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) client is within C:\Program Files\ (or C:\Program Files (x86)). In some cases, you want to install Symantec Endpoint Protection to another folder, drive or both. For example, you would like to install to D:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection.
To install Symantec Endpoint Protection to a custom path, you configure the Client Install Settings, then select the new settings file during package export or new package deployment.
To configure the Client Install Settings:
You then select this custom installation settings file when exporting or deploying the package.
If you have already exported an installation package as separate files (and not a single .EXE file), you can change a setting in SetAid.ini to customize the installation path.
If upgrading, the current path cannot be changed. To change paths, SEP will need to be uninstalled/reinstalled. This can be automated by selecting 'Remove existing Symantec Endpoint Protection client software that cannot be uninstalled' option in Client Install settings. This option will run Cleanwipe, force a reboot, then commence the install. The configured install path in the Client Install settings will be honored as it will be a fresh install.
