How to select the installation folder

Use /D: switch to select the installation folder when installing Bandizip first time. This switch is ignored if Bandizip is already installed.

The switch can be used with an environment variable (like %ProgramW6432%) in the path.

BANDIZIP-SETUP-ENT.EXE /D:"%ProgramW6432%\BandzipTest"
