To maintain my sanity, I force it to install where it should be installed.
The user's folders are for storing user files, not for running applications!
I consider this to be a bug.
I've had enough of newer programs that follow this 'don't install to program files' bull@##% that MS is trying to push. Programs go in program files, simple as that.
