Change default location of C:\ Temp directory

Operationally speaking, it is not ideal to be using the C drive for temp space. Release packages can be several hundred MBs and having a large cache of them needing to live on the C drive is difficult when we typicaly churn servers out with C drives specifically sized to the OS only -- all 'data' should be on attached storage (e.g. the D drive or equiv).

Can we please have the ability to specify a non-C drive location for 'temp' storage?

        Hi Ryan, You can change the directory the deployment agent uses for application files by changing the "Agent.Deployment.ApplicationDirectory" value in the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Red Gate\Deployment Manager".

        Deployment manager stores all other temporary data in the system-defined temp folder for the user the service is running as (LOCAL SYSTEM by default)
