Move Workbench application storage location

ScreenShot012

By default, Workbench stores any Applications that it retrieves from the LiveCycle server into your user profile directory. In some circumstances this isn’t ideal. Maybe you have a domain policy that restricts your profile space or you want them stored on a network drive so they are backed up.

As Workbench is just eclipse, you can move the workspace folder wherever you want, but Adobe disabled the menu items to do this in the GUI (because you would never want to change your workspace directory ever – right?)

Just add this line to the workbench.ini file (usually located in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe LiveCycle Workbench ES4\workbench folder – or wherever you installed Workbench)

-Duser.home=[yourNewPath]

e.g.

-Duser.home=D:\Workspaces\
