Exe setting a path for itself

By Marty9231

  1. HI,

    I have just downloaded an Installer, this installer unpacks itself when activated. (.exe by the way) and it unpacks in a standard folder, which he picks himself!
    in my case my windows drive. (which is NOT made for this kind of big files) Is there any way to change the default unpacking path?

    [the path the app. uses is this: F:\Documents and settings\<username>\Local settings\Temp\RarSFX0, if it helps...]
