    I've got my HDD partitioned with a small C: drive for windows and that's about it.  I put everything else on the other partitions.

    In the installer I set the installation directory to be a location on the D: drive, but when the installer checks for necessary disk space it checks the C: drive (which, in my case, wasn't enough to continue).  I had to make some room on the C: drive in order to install the program onto the D: drive, and everything else works as expected.

    Hello Shaun Peet,

    Thank you for taking the time to write us.

    The installer decompresses the files from the installation package in the temporary files directory, as specified by the environment variable. This directory is set by default to:

    C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\%CURRENT_USER%\LOCAL SETTINGS\TEMP

    This is why the installer needs space on your C drive, regardless of the target folder you've selected for the product to be installed in. You can change the environment variable to point to a partition where you have more available space.

    If you have any additional questions, please contact me.

    All the best,
    Kiril
