Question: I am trying to install to the D:\\ drive but Windows tells me that I need to free up space on my C:\\ drive. Why? and how do I get arround this?

Answer: Windows installer unpacts the software to the temp directory before installing. It then precedes to do the installation. If you do not have a lot of space on the C:\\ drive then windows will ask you to free up some space so it can unpack the installation into the temp directory.

If you do not want to free up space then change your temp folder path to be on a different drive like D:\\. This way windows will unpack the installation on the D:\\ drive were there is more space.
