Tadds - The ADministrator's Database System ®

Tip 8:  Installing Tadds into a root directory.

It is generally considered poor practice to install an application directly into a drive's "root" directory (such as C:\ or D:\), and the Tadds setup process will not normally accept drive root directory ID's as an install directory target.

However, you may want to install the Tadds BackEnd code onto to a network drive (such as F:) that is dedicated to being the Tadds BackEnd database.  In this case, you can fool the setup process into installing to a drive's root directory by appending a backslash and period ( \. ) to the drive's root ID.

Examples of valid target root-ID specifications:  F:\.   or   Q:\.   or  T:\.
