When a Windows 8 App Catalog user installs a Windows app that was uploaded to Apperian as a Windows EXE file, the file is installed in a folder under the user's Home folder (C:\Users\<user>\).  By default, this folder is named "Enterprise Apps." Follow the procedure below to change the name of the folder. If the folder does not yet exist under the Home folder when a user downloads the EXE file, Apperian will create it.

To configure the Installation Folder for Windows 8 app EXE files
  1. On the Admin Portal navigation bar, click Settings.

  2. Click Windows Configuration.

  3. In the EXE Installation Folder field, enter the name of the folder in which EXE files will be installed when a user installs them through the Apperian Windows App Catalog. This name must adhere to Windows naming conventions:

    • Can include any character, including Unicode characters and characters in the extended character set (128–255), except for the following:

      • These reserved characters:

        • < (less than)
        • > (greater than)
        • : (colon)
        • " (double quote)
        • / (forward slash)
        • \ (backslash)
        • | (vertical bar or pipe)
        • ? (question mark)
        • * (asterisk)
      • Integer value zero, sometimes referred to as the ASCII NUL character.
      • Characters whose integer representations are in the range from 1 through 31, except for alternate data streams where these characters are allowed.
      • Any other character that the target file system does not allow.

    • Cannot be any of the following reserved file names: CON, PRN, AUX, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, and LPT9.

    • Cannot end with a space or a period.

    This folder will be created as a subfolder of the user's Home folder (C:\Users\<user>).
