#11146 new Bug report

During client install, choosing "Only for me" does not change default install directory

During installation of the client, the installer offers to install for "everyone" or "only for me."

Presumably, if you choose "only for me," the installer should not require admin rights.

However, during installation, the "only for me" option still attempts to install to C:\Program Files\FileZilla FTP Client, which standard users would not typically have write access to.

More preferably, when "only for me" is chosen, the default directory would be something more akin to C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Local.

This could either be a bug or a feature request, but I would categorize it as a bug since many users, especially in a typical enterprise, don't know what they do and don't have write access to.
