Hi there , by default all 32bit software will choose the x86 path itself unless you define it. It is recommended to install 32bit software to the designated folders in case you have 2 version of ICVerify 4.2 and you can use both at the same time on the different folders and it is good for reference. I  think leaving it as default is the most suggested.
