    Hi,

    There is now way to programmatically change a software package. You need to do it from the Production Manager (or the old silvelight Software Manager).

    You could post this as an idea on the Idea Exchange:

    We have been thinking that we might want a software REST API.

    Hi Anders,

    thanks for your reply.

    Probably my question was not so clear.

    I meant change the installation folder on the client side (WATS client>>Software>>"Local" Root folder)

    Hi,

    Then no, that is not possible. Packages will be installed in %ProgramData%\Virinco\WATS\SoftwareDistribution\. %ProgramData% usually points to C:\ProgramData so the full path would usually be C:\ProgramData\Virinco\WATS\SoftwareDistribution\

    Hi again,

    I'm wrong about the path packages will be installed to. They are installed to the path specified in Software in the WATS Client Configurator. We do not have an API to change this path, but you could suggest that we add it on Idea Exchange.
