In previous versions of Delphi you always had the option to do an advanced install where you could change the installation directory, I always try and conserve space on my C: drive and install the bulk of Delphi on my I: drive (which is a 4tb drive) but with the new installer I can't seem to find how you change the installation path. Is there a way to do that?

If you are using the GetIt installer, the very first screen has a cogwheel in
the lower right. Click it and the option to change it is cleverly hidden there.
The ISO install it is in the normal spot.

Hi Jeff:

Here's a screenshot of the first screen which is the Platform Selection screen and there's no cogwheel in the lower right that I can see https://www.dropbox.com/s/pz7v4onyo8r17o3/Screen%20Shot%2007-25-16%20at%2001.59%20AM.JPG?dl=0

There is a previous one with an "Options" button

Very first screen. It might have been called options ... I only used that
installer during the beta so don't recall now, only that it felt hidden away the
way it is setup to get to.

Borja:

There is a previous screen and it's the License Agreement and Privacy Policy screen, honestly I didn't notice until after about the fifth uninstall / reinstall that there's an options button next to the "Accept / Ok" button. And I was looking for the cogwheel icon Jeff mentioned in his first post.

Jeff: You're right, that options button (to me) seems to be in a really strange place since I imagine most people like myself just click through the License Agreement without really looking. It would seem to me that a more natural location would be the second screen (the platform selection screen) and that's where most people would look for installation options. Just sayin....

Thanks Jeff and Borja for being patient!
