To modify the default OfficeScan client/agent installation path:

  1. On the Officescan Server, open the ..\PCCSRV\ofcscan.ini file using a Text editor.
  2. Look for the following sections:
    [INI_CLIENT_DEFAULT_INSTALLPATH_SECTION]
    WinNT_InstallPath=$ProgramFiles\Trend Micro\OfficeScan Client
    
    [INI_CLIENT_INSTALLPATH_SECTION]
    WinNT_InstallPath=$ProgramFiles\Trend Micro\OfficeScan Client
    
  3. Edit the path to reflect the new path for the OfficeScan client installation.For example, if you want OfficeScan to be installed on drive D:, the lines should look like the following:
    [INI_CLIENT_DEFAULT_INSTALLPATH_SECTION]
    WinNT_InstallPath=D:\OfficeScan Client
    
    [INI_CLIENT_INSTALLPATH_SECTION]
    WinNT_InstallPath=D:\OfficeScan Client
    
     
    You may notice that there's another line that points to the OSCE client directory. You don't have to change the $ symbol under the [ICRC setting section] (seen below) line to the target directory. Keep it as it is.
    [ICRC setting section]
    ICRC pattern directory=$ProgramFiles\Trend Micro\OfficeScan Client\iCRC\Pattern
    ICRC temporary directory=$ProgramFiles\Trend Micro\OfficeScan Client\iCRC\Tmp
    
  4. Save and close the file.
 
The OfficeScan client/agent software will be installed in the same directory on each client/agent. The default path is Program Files\Trend Micro\OfficeScan Client. You may change the client/agent installation path after installing the OfficeScan server and before installing the OfficeScan clients/agents. Changing the installation path after the clients/agents have been installed will require you to perform reinstallation.
