Specifying a custom "Shared Resources Directory" for WebSphere Process Server Version 7 installations

A question I ran into today was how to change the default "Shared Resources" location that is used during the installation process.
When WebSphere Process Server is installed by the Launchpad, it automatically "imports" WebSphere Application Server into Installation Manager and uses a hard-coded default value for the Shared Resources location; commonly in the following form: "/IBM/BPMShared". This location is set during the first install or import of a product into Installation Manager and is shared with other related products. It is suggested that you use a location with sufficient disk space. This technote describes the method to modify a file that Launchpad uses to specify the default location (<Install imag
For those of you who wish to dive a little deeper into the subject:
The Shared Resources location is controlled by the com.
As a result:
Remember: You can set this location only on the first product install or WebSphere Application Server import. If you already have products installed, unfortunately, you will have to uninstall and reinstall to change the location.
