MicroStation CONNECT Edition Readme

Redirecting the Package Cache

A package cache is a location where installation files of a software are stored. These files are needed when you want to uninstall or repair a software. If you have limitations to disk space on C:\ drive, you can get extraction errors. In such case, you can redirect the package cache to another local drive on your computer and save space on C:\.

Prior to redirecting the package cache, you need to consider the following:
  1. Redirecting the package cache location requires administrative privileges. Installer will use this location for extraction and download of all packages.
  2. Redirecting to external hard disks, pen drives, or network paths is not supported.
  3. Once you define the location, overwriting it is not recommended.
Following are the steps to do so:
  1. Start MicroStation with the command line argument IsPackageCacheButtonAvailable=1

    The MicroStation installer opens with a link Change Cache Location at the bottom.

  2. Click the Change Cache Location link.
  3. In the Package Cache Location page that opens, click the Browse button next to the Package Cache Location field.
  4. Navigate to the location where you want to redirect the package cache and click OK.
  5. Click Save.
