I need to ensure the unified launcher is not resident on the C: drive.  It must be able to be directed to a custom install location or relocatable via drag&drop or cut&paste to the correct HDD ( D:\Wargaming.net\ ).  Also, what, if any, keys need to be updated with the new path in the registry?

Win10 64 Pro:

Cut & Paste the "C:\Program Data\Wargaming.net\Game Center" folder to desired location. 

Works with no ill effects noticed.

It appears that no registry changes are needed.

Install defaults to "C:\ProgramData\Wargaming.net\GameCenter\wgc.exe"

Now resides at "D:\Wargaming.net\GameCenter\wgc.exe"

 

After importing all 3 World of War* games and completed updating 2 of 3, paused 3rd mid update, closed/exited, moved it, reopened it, it picked up where it left off without issue.  It retained info on install locations of clients and previous progress for the paused update.

Thank you for the workaround! 

Also, we will be fixing this in the future, so please stay tuned!
