OCD in the Registry = BAD night for Mikey

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a couple issues

Firstly, I have my ASUS Xonar Essence ST sound driver installed with the little program that I don't want but is required (apparently) and it creates an icon in the control panel. I would like to change the directory that the driver is installed but when I do that, the link in control panel no longer works. Is there any registry file or does anyone know how I can change the path and link it to the new directory so it will open fine?

Next...and this has me pulling out my hair...I bought Adobe CS5 MC the other day and installing it makes me angry because my OCD kicks in. I would like to have the entire thing installed on one SSD, but Adobe doesn't like that. I point it to F:\\Program Files\\Adobe...etc. During the initial installer, Adobe says that my directory is TOO LONG! I've never heard of that!? Why is that...? During my last install, I just changed the directory name after and put them all into nice neat little organized folders and had no problems with those programs...until it was time to update and the updater tried to update in the original install file. Is there any way I can direct the updater to the new directory...?

Also, WHY does Adobe install other programs in other locations? For example, CS5 was installed on my F drive but the Pixel Bender toolkit and stuff were put on my C drive...one in the x86 and one in the x64 folder. It's just putting things where I don't want them. I tried moving each of them (which I'm also sure the updater won't appreciate) and the Media Encoder said something like "this isn't the default location, opening anyways." and it opened. Why would it matter if it's the default location if it opens anyways?

Quite frankly, I just want all my Adobe programs like this:

F:\\Program Files\\Adobe Systems Incorporated\\Creative Suite 5\\Program Name
and
F:\\Program Files\\Adobe Systems Incorporated\\Creative Suite 5\\Tools\\Program Name

Is there any way to do this without making the updater mad?

I know it's a lot to ask but I really would appreciate ANY help at all guys You've always been helpful in the past and I could really use it now.

Thanks so much.

Anyone?

I found the ASUS driver .cpl file, it's like CmiCnfg.cpl or something like that.

Anyone know about Adobe?
