Default Download Location for Windows 8 Software Center

Posted by mundeep on August 12, 2013

Curious about where Windows 8 Software Center (part of Microsoft System Center 2012) caches it’s downloads?
I wanted to know where the downloads where cached so i wouldn’t have to re-download them if required to re-run later down the track.

Run the following Powershell command to find out:

$Cache = gwmi -class CacheConfig -Namespace root\ccm\SoftMgmtAgent
$Cache.Location

In my case it was: C:\Windows\ccmcache which i imagine may be a default.

Thanks to David O’Briens How to configure the ConfigMgr Client cache article for helping me find this. The article also details how you can change it and some warnings if you do.
