SP2010: Defining managed paths in SharePoint 2010

I need to define managed paths in SharePoint 2010. I cannot find link to it in Central Admin, where is it?

Trivial after you find it, but took some browsing through the Central Admin in order to find the new location and realize that one really should pay attention to Ribbon.

  1. Go to Central Administration -> Application Management -> Manage web applications

  2. Click on the web application for which you wish to define managed paths and click Managed Paths on the Ribbon.

  3. Proceed as usual


  1. Error 1316:"A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file: :\Install.msi"

    Follow the following guidelines to fix this error:
    1. Use Windows Installer Clean Up
    2. Use a Registry Fixing Utility
    3. Change Windows Installer Registry Information
    4. Check the Security Details of the Concerning File

  2. Nice post. Here is the one more post explaining Managed path in Sharepoint
