Essential Studio Install

I've just tried to install Essential Studio using the community licence.

Unfortunately it is failing to allow me install since when I enter

d:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\

for Installation Location and Samples Location it tells me "Invalid drive. Please selects a valid drive."

Both of those folders are valid on my PC, and since my C drive is a small SSD I install all programs to my D drive and have placed the users folder on the D drive.

Is there a workaround I can use?

Hi Dave,

We regret for the inconvenience caused.

Could you please change the root drive name to D:\ instead of d:\? Also you should have minimum 13 GB free space in installed drive to install the Syncfusion Essential Studio setup.

Install Path:
D:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\

Samples Path:

Now you can install the v13.2 setup successfully in your machine.

Please let us know if you need any further assistance on this.

Cheers for that, it worked, I'm now sorted.

FYI, "d:\Users\<username>\..." was as it was presented in the dialog with no modification by me.
I changed the D: in "D:\Program Files (x86)..." to match this thinking that was how the installer wanted the drives specified.
