So you want to store your SIM720 addon's on a different drive to FSX/P3D but the installer doesn't let you, here's how.
This assumes you have already installed one of our products.
For this example my FSX is located at "C:\FSX" and i want my SIM720 products stored on "F:\FSX-ADDON"
1. Move the whole SIM720 folder from "C:\FSX\SIM720" to "F:\FSX-ADDON\SIM720"
2. Download this software http://code.google.com/p/symlinker/ and run it (no install needed)
3. Set it to "Folder symbolic link"
4. Set the link folder to your fsx root folder "C:\FSX" and give it the name "SIM720"
5. Set the destination folder to where you moved the files to "F:\FSX-ADDON\SIM720"
6. Set the link type to "Directory Junction"
7. Click "Create Link"
Your all done, now when you install more SIM720 products it will automatically go to the new location
Pictures below show how it should look.
