While I was upgrading from v7.66 to v7.67 I noticed
the the mIRC installer does not remember the previous location of mIRC if it is already installed...
In my case I use: C:\Programs32\mIRC
so as to not have permission issue, I created two new programs folders for some types of programs that I regular manually update or modify settings in....

instead it defaults to: C:\Program Files (x86)\mIRC

Is this a bug in Windows 10 or a installer issue that cab be fixed?
If you feel this thread is bug report worthy please feel free to move it to bug-report sub-forum..

If you are installing mIRC as a portable application, in a custom folder, the installer will not save any settings to your computer. That is the purpose of a portable installation - to not make changes to your computer. This means that when you run the installer again, it cannot know where you previously installed mIRC.
