Question:

When an installation directory is specified by r8.6 installer, Gen products are installed in the specified directory, but below components are installed in SharedComponents directory in Program Files(x86). Is it working as designed?
I would like to put them together to the directory specified if possible since if the directory of CA products are separated, management becoming complicated and Program Files have a problem of user account control of Windows. 
 

 

Answer: 

There are following folders under Shared Components folder.
C:¥Program Files (x86)¥CA¥SharedComponents¥CA_LIC 
C:¥Program Files (x86)¥CA¥SharedComponents¥JRE 
 
\CA_LIC folder is a directory for license products installed by the license product installer called from a Gen installer. 
Since it is referred to not only from Gen but from other CA products, change of an installation directory is not recommended. 
 
\JRE folder is Java Runtime provided with Gen products in Gen r8.6. 
It is installed in %ProgramFiles%\CA\SharedComponents\JRE in the Windows environment. 
 

Additional Information:

Please refer to the [installation directory] of the technical information (Japanese) of a link below as reference information about \CA_LIC folder.
