Sims 4 install directory

Post by FMX05 on Wed 10 Dec 2014, 08:16

Hi, I'm trying to install The Sims 4 and the cracked installer won't allow me to change the install directory.  I see the readme says you do not recommend it but I use a small SSD as my boot drive and there is no way it will fit.  Even when I select a folder in a different partition the next screen of the installer tells me I do not have enough disk space and shows it is trying to install in C:.  Any help is appreciated.  Thank you.

Hello and welcome,


Sorry, but that's indeed a weakness of the release: the fact that you cannot change the default install location. At this point, your best bet is to free up space otherwise on your SSD (and besides the actual installation files, you would need additional filespace for your saves, mods, custom content, and the like). We may come up with a fix for that sometime in the future though.

Sorry again.

Not anytime soon, sorry. Free up some space on your C: drive, if you can.
