# Install addons for Blender portable version to the portable folder instead of AppData folder? [duplicate]

Is it possible to install addons for Blender portable version to the portable folder instead of AppData folder?

Currently it is installed at:

C:\Users\my_user\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.81\scripts\addons


I want it scripts to be installed at

C:\Users\my_user\repositories\blender\2.81\scripts\addons


What I've tried so far:

Copying the addon to the folder by hand. Apparently it doesn't show up when browsing the addons. Maybe it registers the scripts somewhere during the installation?

Defining a path for scripts in blender preferences setting.

Apparently it still installs to the path in AppData. So this might be for something else?

So what do you think?
