Sims 4 not installing to proper directory

Post by awesomeness04 on Sat 30 May 2015, 08:36

Hello,

I am trying to install The Sims 4, however I have run into an installation issue. I inputted a custom installation directory on another drive because my OS drive is an SSD and does not have much space left. However, the game installs to the normal :C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4" instead of where I wanted it to go. I tested this 5 times, using a different drive and running as an admin each time.

Is there a way I can get it to install on my other drive? Thanks.

Hi, I have the same problem and I saw similar unsolved posts in older threads. Unfortunately I couldn't find any with solution.. I will try to go through all solved older threads in hope to find a solution, so I will write here as soon as I will find something useful, or did you find some solution?

Thanks and have a nice day Smile

Hi there,

Unfortunately the installer doesn't allow you to install to another drive.
But fortunately you can change the installation location after installation. In order to do so, follow these steps: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t19572-how-to-move-the-sims-4-to-another-partition-after-installation-fix

Good luck!
