Cakewalk installation path?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi, I noticed that Cakewalk installed in the root folder of my C drive. Is there a way to change it? And is that by default?

For decades Cakewalk has installed two folders in the system drive root directory

  • Cakewalk Content
  • Cakewalk Projects

The rest of the application is installed on the system drive but these are the only two folders in the root.

The old Cakewalk Command Center provides a way to move "Cakewalk Content" in the Path tab of Settings but a directory junction will do the same without having to mess with the registry.

"Cakewalk Projects" is the default project folder. It may be modified in Preferences > File Locations, however; if the modified location cannot be found when the program starts up, the location in preferences will silently revert to the default path. This is why I use a directory junction to relocate this folder and leave the folder location in preferences set to the default.

Regardless of where "Cakewalk Content" and "Cakewalk Projects" physically reside keep in mind, CbB and all previous Cakewalk DAWs must be installed on the same drive.
