Edge Enterprise installation without folder EdgeCore

Olga 1 Reputation point


I'm trying to understand, why during installation Edge for Enterprise (on WIndows Server 2016) there is EdgeCore folder, I have separated installation of WebView.

I have the same installation on Windows Server 2012R2 and there is only Edge and EdgeUpdate folder, without EdgeCore.

How I can install Edge for Enterprise without EdgeCore?

    Hi @Olga

    AFAIK, the files in EdgeCore folder are shared between the browser and WebView products owned by Microsoft to save disk space across products using the same binaries. I think it's by design that Edge is installed with EdgeCore folder in certain OS. We can't control folder creation in Edge installation, and it's not recommended to remove any file in Edge installation folder.
