For Symbian apps, instead of using ! (exclamation point) in the .pkg file, use a specific drive letter (C = phone memory).

See the Symbian/S60 SDK documentation for .pkg file format details.

As a developer, may I ask why you want to do that? Is there a specific reason (performance, memory, etc...)?

As N/A wrote, to install on a specific drive rather than let the user choose the location, you need to give the drive letter (instead of "!") in the .pkg file. So for internal memory (i.e. disk C: ) it should be

C:\somefolder\somefile

instead of !:\somefolder\somefile

This will enforce installation on C: and user will NOT be asked to choose the destination drive.

Just check if *all* installation paths in the .pkg file have drive letter instead of "!". If you leave even just one "!" then user will be asked to choose the destination drive FOR THAT COMPONENT.
