Installing Tabs Studio to a different directory

By default Tabs Studio installs to a subdirectory in the user's My Documents directory. You can install it to a different directory using the following command (for Visual Studio 2008):

msiexec /i TabsStudio_234.msi INSTALLLOCATION2008=c:\TabsStudio2008

You also need to add this path to Visual Studio 2008 options:

For Visual Studio 2010 it is more complex as in this case Tabs Studio uses additional helper extension installed by default to a subdirectory of LocalAppDataFolder.
