Any way to redirect installer placed folders?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This focuses really on the stupid install folders that games make, shoving them all into My Documents. It isn't my Documents anymore, it's my save game/random game configuation data/other crapuments. Exceptions are visual studio, I like having that there, since it's only one folder and it is more applicable to the folder than save game data.

This really annoys me. Is there a way to force installers to install their extra stuff somewhere else?

I believe you are looking for folder redirection
