Because of some security application lock measures, internally here in my company pc settings, I cannot easily run the OpenForisCollect-launcher 3.13.9. Even when adding an exception to run the launcher in this folder (C:\OpenForis) I receive an error.

So I would like to use another install folder where I'm authorized to launch applications, named E:\Dev\OpenForis\ Is it possible to do it? I cannot find the way to make it.

Thank you Andrea

This is the error I receive:

Dear Andrea,
You can customize the installation folder of Collect during the installation:
Collect Installation Screenshot

The error you got should be related to some missing files in your user folder.
Collect stores the user configuration and data under this folder: c:/Users/YOUR_USER/OpenForis/Collect
Please verify that you have a file called collect.properties and a folder called data there.

Thank you a lot, the problem is solved; the Collect user folder wasn't created in the correct folder (it was in the admin user one..). Thanks again, Andrea

Hi Andrea,
Probably you installed Collect running the installer as an Administrator and the configuration files went into the wrong user folder.
Don't forget that you don't need administrative rights to install it.
Thanks again,
