    Installing apps to storage card

    I have noticed that when installing apps using Windows Marketplace application on my phone it doesnt give me the option to install to my storage card. Has anyone found a way around this yet.

    They just announced improvements, including the ability to store apps on your storage card.

    glad they started to do this, especially with Windows Seven and only being allowed to download from the market

    New version of Marketplace 1.2 allows installing to your storage card. Just be warned that there are a lot of connection issues with Marketplace 1.2. I was finally able to get it to work and re-downloaded Facebook 1.2 (1.1.0.14). Make sure to adjust your settings in Marketplace to save to Storage Card.

    Wow. Connection issue is an understatement. Yet another epic fail by Microsoft.

    Look under Menu - Settings. There you can choose:

    Select Default Install Location = \Storage Card

    You also have to Choose region for catalog.

    Weird thing is that everytime I open marketplace it checks for an update and I think this is stupid. Then I come and read this thread and realize I don't have the most up to date version. No problem I'll just open marketplace and it will update itself. Figures the time that there actually is a useful update Marketplace doesn't bother to check for it so I have to go to microsoft.com and download it.

    Now that I got that out of the way what is the deal with this bootstrap business? Why can't I just download the marketplace.cab? Nothing is ever normal and easy with Microsoft.
