Description:
See also bug report 87957.

When I did the "Add...", the installer did not use the directory path for the old version AND IT DID NOT PROMPT ME FOR A NEW ONE.  It just arbitrarily put it on my "C" drive in its default location.

(This was REALLY ANNOYING because my "C" drive is an SSD, and I don't generally put software there that is not required when booting).

How to repeat:
See the steps in bug report 87957.

Well, I am not going to reinstall at this point, but my recollection was that there was no offering of "advanced options" when I did the Add.  (It was there when I did my original install a few years ago).

I suspect I just missed it.  I was looking for a place where the path was displayed, and I see that doesn't display until you click advanced.
