The installation of a software is always happened by default in C:\Program Files, but we want to have it in a different path C:\NewPath\SoftwareEX

How is that possible?

Thank you in advance,

When you install a software without silent parameters, most of the wizards will let you decide the installation path.... But I guess we are talking about silent installs here (no Setup Wizard)... I guess you will have to ask the software vendor, if they have any switch to Determine or Change the path.... silently.

I don;t think KACE appliance itself has a way to do this, since it will simply execute an .EXE or .MSI with your desired parameters.

need to elaborate more , msi/setup.

As suggested by Channeler , you can pass argument to installer ( if it supports)

You may repackage your installation to a silent msi installation. That allows you to apply a number of settings, including a custom installation location. You can repackage installations using our tool PACE Suite, and here's a video guide on how to do it: http://pacesuite.com/blog/how-to-create-a-response-transform/ Then, during the deployment, your setup will install into the location you've determined, and no interaction from your users will be necessary.
