KeePass 1.25.exe does not install on any other disk drive than C:\

    Hi, I have KeePass 1.23 installed on my D:\ hard drive (the C:\ drive has only Windows 7 and a couple of other programs on it, and I try to keep it as "lean" as possible.)

    I want to install the update to KeePass v. 1.25. But after I downloaded KP 1.25.EXE and tried to install it, the setup gave no choice where it would be installed-- only on the Programs (x86) folder of the C:\ drive.

    I don't recall how I installed v. 1.23 on the D:\ drive a few months ago when the computer was new. And I don't understand why I cannot install 1.25 there now.

    Is there a way install the .EXE package on the D:\ drive rather than the C:\?

    Or should I just install the .ZIP version?

    Thank you.

    Correct, install the portable version (.zip) of KeePass.

    I don't know what you downloaded, but the only official installer for KeePass 1.25 is 'KeePass-1.25-Setup.exe', available from .

    This installer does support installing to any directory you wish. Here's a screenshot of the dialog where you can choose the installation path:

    Note that if you previously installed KeePass 1.23 onto C:\ and now run the 1.25 setup, the setup automatically chooses the C:\ location as destination for the upgrade, without the possibility to change the path. If you want to change the path, first uninstall KeePass 1.23 and then run the 1.25 setup.

    Best regards,
