Description:
Installer always uses default folder "Program files\MySQL\..." instead of folder with already installed Workbench.

How to repeat:
Run installer on a system where previous version already installed in custom path.

Suggested fix:
Use path where Workbench was installed early instead of default.

On a system, where the default folder is NOT "c:\progam files\" (e.g. on Windows XP - german version - it is "c:\programme\") a new server instance could not be created, because the workbench always wanted to use the default path e.g "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\" instead of "C:\Programme\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\".
