    Cool Choosing Installation Directory To Install Application Using Install Creator Pro

    I'm selling applications created using Multimedia Fusion and creating installs using Install Creator Pro. I've been putting the apps into the a c:\myproduct directory. I've been told that this could cause problems for users to install and access the applications. Are there versions of Windows, like Win 8, that will not allow applications to run from this type of installation directory? If I use #Program Files#, will that work for all versions of Windows? Any help appreciated in nailing down what is the best way to set up the installation directories so the applications work for all versions of Windows and for all users.
    Thanks in advance,
    Steve Hughes

    I think you can install your app in C:\myproduct, I don't see what kind of problem this could cause. Anyway I guess the user can change the install directory in your installer if necessary?

    #Program files# works on all versions of Windows.

    The difference between #Program Files#\MyProduct and C:\MyProduct is that #Program Files#\MyProduct is protected by the UAC on Windows Vista/7/8, so your application cannot write to this directory unless it's executed with administrator rights.
