Heyas,

I am trying to install https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=22602

As per the article

https://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/2896/where-do-i-find-the-performance-dashboard-for-sql-server-2008/

But I can't modify the install path, see pics below:

Tried the following in cmd run as admin: C:\>msiexec /a "sqlserver2005_PerformanceDashboard" INSTALLDIR="C:\myfolder" /qb
Tried the following in cmd run as admin: C:\>msiexec /a "sqlserver2005_PerformanceDashboard" TARGETDIR="C:\myfolder" /qb

Neither of the above works.

How can I overcome this?

Thank you.

I'm sorry but your question isn't very clear to me. are you trying to change the install path of another installation or do you have your own msi project that you want to include this in?

if its the latter you can just include it in your project as a redistributable .

First, create the folder you want to install it into, then type it into the box from your Install-Pic-2 image.
What happens?

"msiexec /a" doesn't install an msi; it creates an administrative/network installation.
Use PERFDASH to specify the installation dir.
msiexec /i SQLServer2005_PerformanceDashboard.msi PERFDASH="C:\myfolder" /qb

Open in new window

Click dropdown box under 'Look In:", then you will be able to select another directory. You can click on the top C:, it will show all directories on the hard drive, then you can navigate down to the one you want.
screenshotClick on the button on the right from dropdown box goes one level up, click on the next one creates new directory.
