OneAgent Location on Windows Host - Has it changed?

Do we know if the location of the OneAgent has been recently changed for Windows?

 

Previously, the OneAgent has been installed in C:\Program Files (x86) but recently, it has been found in C:\Program Files taking all of it's files with it (including the dynatrace_ingest tool).


This has caused some issues with script outputs for custom metrics which are being sent to the dynatrace_ingest tool hardcoded to the old location.

 

The timelines seem to correlate to a recent OneAgent update 1.219.134.20210624-153812.

Hello @sholmes 

Default value: %PROGRAMFILES%\dynatrace\oneagent

https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/setup-and-configuration/dynatrace-oneagent/installation-and-o...

The INSTALL_PATH parameter allows OneAgent installation to a directory of your choice.

Note: This parameter is not supported by the UI installer.

Regards,
