Holy cow, I wrote a book!
JeffDav's story of a program that didn't like it when he
told it where to install
reminded me of another program that we dealt with during
Windows 95 development.
This was a big-name program developed by one of the biggest-of-the-big
name software companies. Let's give this program the imaginary name
Its setup program asked you where you wanted the program to be
installed, and it suggested "C:\LITWARE".
If you accepted the default, then everything proceeded normally.
However, if you changed the default to anything else,
the setup program ran to completion, but the program itself wouldn't run.
Because the program contained the hard-coded path "C:\LITWARE"
and insisted that it find its support files in that directory.
At least Jeff's program realized that it was about to be installed
into a directory where it would fail to work!
