I never install anything to C:\Program Files\ and I don't want to start now. How can I do a custom install to my preferred location?
While I am here, downloading Photoshop, After Effects and Audition has used up nearly 30% of my monthly bandwidth. Why isn't the Install Manager smart enough to know that I have a 64 bit OS and only install the 64 bit versions of the CS applications? It would save a lot of bandwidth and disc space (I only have a 128Gb SSD).
Change the location in the Application Manager prefs. Some components will however still be installed on your system root drive. 32bit versions are installed to provide compatibility with certasin legacy features like printer drivers, scanners and older plug-ins that may not come with 64bit versions. That aside, the video apps are 64bit only, anyway. The rest is between you and your Internet provider.
OK, that's good but it raises another question - if I unistall the applications from their current locations and try to reinstall them, will the Install Manager have to waste aother 30% of my monthly bandwidth to download them again or does it have the download stored away somewhere?
