I don't know why you'd want to, cause the folder it installs in is fine. But for the sake of making the installer more standard, this would be a fine idea smile.gif.

Because I like to install all my apps I only use in a subfolder, but why should you care? dry.gif
Any other app I know has this "function"

Would it also benefit those who have their Program Files on another drive?

Ah, yeah I often forget that Program Files can be installed else where. Sorry. Then from what I can see it could be pretty usefull for people who have their program files under a different directory.

I wouldn't mind seeing this either as I usually install programs on my D: partition. Then again the Windows Live Messenger installer doesn't give you an option to change the installation folder as far as I'm aware so it would probably make sense for StuffPlug to be installed in the same place as WLM.
