Change Installation folder

Post by NickG » Fri Dec 21, 2018 12:31 pm

I installed Trichview, ScaleRichView etc in a folder that was relative to the installer exes and would dearly like to change that folder.
I enabled the installation for XE2, XE10.2 and when available would like to enable for XE10.3.
The XE2 is only needed until I can port some reports into ReportWorkshop and then I plan to move the apps to the latest supported Delphi version.

What would you advise as the most problem free way to change that install folder?
I assume that an uninstall followed by a reinstall to a different folder will achieve this but wanted to check what problems might arise in the IDEs if I do this.
Thanks.

Uninstalling and then installing in another folder is the recommended solution. Problems must not happen.
Uninstall ScaleRichView before uninstalling TRichView.

Thank you Sergey for that quick response.
- I forgot to mention RVMedia
Is there a correct un/install sequence to include RVMedia (or is that independent)?
Best regards, -- Nick
