Change location for installation of SC2

Technical Support
Post Limit:
How do I change the location in which my SC2 would be installed. I had to install a new hard drive on my computer and somehow its divided into a C drive and F drive. My C drive contains only 15 GBs while my F Drive contains 490 GBs. But everytime I try to download SC2 off this website its goes to C drive and says I dont have enough space.

Can someone tell me how to change the destination folder from C drive to F drive.

Thanks,
Creamcheesed
bump? someone help?
creamcheesed, after you click Accept to the EULA, does the next screen give an option to change the Install Location?

No I dont even get to the install part I am still on the Blizzard Downloader. I need to find a way to change the download location by the Blizzard Downloader on your website under Game Management.

Sorry for any misunderstanding,

Ok, so you want to download this first:

StarCraft_2_NA_en-US.exe

Click on EXPLORE at the top of the page, and then Game Client Downloads.

This link will take you there too:

https://us.battle.net/account/download/index.xml

This is the direct link to the Downloader:

https://us.battle.net/account/management/sc2/download.html?gameRegion=NA&lang=en-US&platform=win

You can download it to anywhere. Then double-click on it, and you'll get to choose where you want to install StarCraft II.

ya thats the problem is won't allow me to change it. It just checks the C drive and starts downloading. Is there anyway to manaully change the location?
Let it download, and once you go to install, you should be able to change the Install Location.

Same problem as hobopartol and legolas. Incidentally, I only had to reinstall because patch 1.5.1 crashed no matter what I tried. Nice work Blizzard.
At least yours will start up lol
Same problem here, and it's definitely Blizzard's bug. It's downloading to my SSD without asking.
Bump. Same issue. I have a different HDD I use for my games aside from my C:\ drive (my gaming HDD is a 7200 rpm drive)
Same issue. Installer goes directly to downloading it to my C: drive. I need to download to my secondary HDD but it doesn't give me a choice and there are no options.

Also, after downloading about a GB of it, it says I can play and will launch the game, but when I try to sign into b.net I get an error saying an authorized language pack is required from Blizzard. My account is set to EnUS, same as everything else.
In case you guys haven't figured it out yet. I just barely did a fresh install of SCII. You can change the install directory. It's pretty easy. The little bar is just really, REALLY easy to miss. I started the install like 5 times looking for it.

On the EULA agreement window (the one that you have to scroll down before you can accept and move on) there is a line at the very top, where is states the installation path. Just change it right there. It's the screen right after you launch the downloader and click install.

Like I said, super easy to miss, but it is there. Hope that was helpful.
Thank you a ton Matix, Helped a bunch.
Thanks, that help, i missed that too.
