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?

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.

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

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

Thanks

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
