How do I stop my programs from installing on the D drive

The program needs to have SQL 2005 installed prior to the main installation but it keeps installing SQL 2005 to the D: drive.  I need to install SQL to the C: drive so that the program works correctly as D Drive is only for iso files.  

Is there a way to make this right?

Are you running the installation via the GUI or the command line?

GUI. I don't know enough to use the command lines.

Thanks

Is C the %systemdrive%? SQL installs many of the basic program files and data files to the %systemdrive% by default.  Via the GUI installer you have no control over this.  In the cmd line install options you have more flexibility.

Thanks for the info.  I guess when I created the VM, I imported the VHD file separately instead of converting the the VHD files to a Xen .xva file.  Once I rebuilt the VM this way the issue was resolved.

It helped guide my mistake into looking at it from the install point
