I originally installed mono earlier today to its default path, c:\program files (x86)\mono.... then realized it would be alot easier (for paths at least) to install it somewhere like c:\mono or d:\mono, so I uninsatlled the application, now when I run the installer it will not let me change the path to install it.

Even after a reboot (after uninstalling mono)

It appears to be an issue with the Mono .msi, not with the universal installer.

Hey Jo, is that something we can address in our msi?
