Hi All,

I am developing a client -server application in Visual Studio 2005 C#.

I am using sqlite as my database.

When  I build one click installation and install it on another machine the sqlite database is install on following default path which is
C:\Documents and Settings\lt\Local Settings\Apps\2.0\XTRXPMR6.CE0\LJEH924J.7R4\asce...exe_27e7cc688ee11b76_0001.0000_none_1a9ebedbf08f462c\Data\

What I want to do is install the sqllite database to a folder on c drive i.e C:\sqlite\

How can I do this in my Visual Studio which on build becomes one click installation.

Thanks a lot for the help in advance.

Aash.

You can't. One of the design goals of ClickOnce applications is that they require no administrative privileges, and the only places you can write with impunity on Vista and Windows Fabulous (7) are under the user's profile.

so simply put there's no way to change or override the installation location for ClickOnce applications.
