Where have you published the changes to Burn? I'd like to look at them.

Subject: [wix-users] Downloading large payloads to drive with most free space


our bundle contains large payloads (cabs), which are downloaded to system temporary directory. However, for some of our customers this is an issue (they don't have enough free space on their system drives - you know small/ cheap SSDs and such...).

Is it possible to change this?

We're already using custom private build with some adjustments, so it is not an issue to modify Burn engine. So far our changes were very small and localized and we were hoping that this would already be implemented (for example Windows Update does extract its packages to the partition with most free space available).

Also, we're not caching our packages, but Burn still moves them to Package Cache (which is again located on system drive). Is it possible to change this behavior as well?
