Changing project root


I’d like my project root to be located outside of the Lumberyard install location, to a folder (or HDD) of my choosing.

To illustrate, here’s what I’d like to accomplish:

**Lumberyard install:**C:\Amazon\Lumberyard\


For the life of me I cannot find a way to do this. Can anyone help? Is this even possible?



PS: Please no symlinks :wink:

Hi @Twolewis,

Lumberyard does not support project folders outside the Lumberyard install location. The only way I know of to achieve it is to use a junction (symlink). However, keep in mind you may want two junctions, one for the dev/Code/ folder that has your project code, and another for the dev/ folder that has all the levels, assets etc.

Ugh, that sucks. But thanks for confirming anyway, petrocket.

Suffice to say this “isn’t great” - especially since (as you said) I need two links to sufficiently source-control the project. I’d love to see Amazon put forth the effort to have projects live outside the install root - one less headache for teams to worry about during setup & dev.
