Can I install Macro Generator and Patternmaker on another HDD, so that Macro Generator knows where to find Patternmaker?

I believe you can install MacroGen on another drive, but not PatternMaker.

In both the programs is defined that they are installed in the program files (x86). So when MG switches to PM it is looking in the program files(x86) for PM. It also wants to look for data in My documents/patternmaker, like meas tables, measure pictures. Also really important when you test your macros’s that all information can be a found. Therefore it is really important that both programs are installed at the proper place.
When you use another disk it can only work when you have set your computer so that your program files are installed at that data disk. You can also change your My documents to another disk like the D disk, but this has to be set in your computer.
You can not install Pm and Mg at another place when all your programs are installed in the program files because you can not change the settings then.
