I'm getting the following error when I try to install Schema Compare for Oracle:

Error: Insufficient disk space on drive 'C':. 500 Mb of free disk space is required.

I have another local drive on my system, and would like to use that for the installation. Is there a way to do this?

Hi dschierbaum,

When you run the installer, just after agreeing to the End User License Agreement, you should arrive at a screen called "Customizing the installation folder" which allows you to choose a new location for installation.

Thanks,
Neil

I'm not getting that far; the error dialog is the first thing I see when I launch the installer.

Ah I see.

The installer itself needs space to unpack before installing Data Compare.
You can set this to your other drive by setting an environment variable called RGTEMP to point to the required location.

Yes you can change the installation location.If you run install software then by default it save on software location(C drive).
