Change Installation Manager log and temp folder locations

Posted on October 30th, 2008

How to change Citrix Installation Manager folder locations. By default the follwing folder locations are used when deploying packages (on Windows x64)

C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\Installer\Temp

C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\Installer\Log

These can be changed by adding the following registry keys

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\IMS\2.0\Logfolder       D:\logs (REG_SZ)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\IMS\2.0\TempFolder   D:\Temp (REG_SZ)

You may also need to add these registry entries if you get the following Event Log error messages when deploying an msi package:

Event Type:    Error
Event Source:    InstallationManager
Event Category:    None
Event ID:    3601
Description:
Error:The system cannot find the file specified.
, Details:CRegKey::QueryValue(LogFolder)

Event Type:    Error
Event Source:    InstallationManager
Event Category:    None
Event ID:    3601
Description:
Error:The data is invalid.
, Details:CRegKey::QueryValue(TempFolder)

Tested on Citrix Presentation Server 4.5 HRP2 on Windows 2003 x64 Standard Edition.
