Good morning,

first of all forgive me if this question has been asked by someone else before,
i just could not find something about this.

Anyway, when i install the 64bit version of 3.6 under Windows 7 home premium 64,
the default location is something like
c:\users\user\appdata\roaming\pov-ray\v3.6
(i am installing as administrator account).

However, i rather prefer to install the program somewhere at c:\program
files\pov-ray\v3.6 and it should be available to all users.

when i try to use this directory during installing dialog i get an errormessage
(1023) telling me, that there are no sufficient rights to install the program
there. However, i am logged in with admin rights and other programs i can
install without problems.

Does anybody know how to work around?

For the 32 bit version, I turn off UAC while installing the beta. A bit 
of a pain as you have to reboot again when you switch it back on.
