Tethering without creating a folder

Hi everyone 

I can tether my Nikon Z6ii no problem. The question I have is - is there a way I can send my images directly to a folder WITHOUT creating a folder. The issue I have is that I am trying to send my images to a spooling folder for a piece of software so it then loads the image straight into the  software. My problem is when I try to do this, Lightroom creates a folder and my other software does not see into the folder to download the image. 

Any help would be appreciated. 

Thanks

Warren

I have the same request.  I want to tether so it can dump my files into a hot folder to print.  i don't want the session folder that lightroom creates

I have tried so many different ways and looked everywhere on line, I can't find any suggestions anywhere, it is very frustrating.

Thinking in 'reverse'-  Would it be possible to define the "spooling folder" for the other software to use the 'Session' folder, after you have set up the Tether Session folder?

(Not knowing what the "other software" is, or how it works.)

Hi Rob 

Thanks for your advice. Unfortunately, this is something that I have tried but to no avail I am afraid. It still doesn't move the pix into the other program.

Consider trying other Tether software, perhaps that might work for you. The Z6ii is listed in the supported cameras for DigiCamControl-

TETHER - DIGICAMCONTROL

Thanks Rob. 
I have solved it! I thought about what you said and suddenly it clicked. I deleted the original Spool folder from its location within the other program's folders and then renamed the Studio Session folder 'Spool' and put it in the same folder as the original Spool folder had been. The pix then began importing. I will just have to relabel the spool folder each time and delete the previous one but that's no hardship, Thanks Rob.
