I would changed the default install path from the Program Folder or allow the installation program to create a empty folder for each folder needed. Most installation programs set the permission (security) correctly for the Program Folder. Windows has high security/permission setting for the Program Folder.
I usually just use a folder on the C drive called the name of my software for my install location. C:\MySoftware\.
Stacy, thanks, yep, should have done my homework before posting.
Yes, the Program Folder in Windows has the Attribute: Read-Only (Applies to all file in Folder), and I will not change that. Will continue with telling people ti install to the C Drive.
There are installers you can use to copy the files over to the locations you want for your run time. Last I heard, at least one or two were either free or at least shareware to use.
