Some people recommend installing the software in say, external hard drives and this is like, say, if sometime if you uninstall or like, say, reresh your Windows, your software doesn't get erased but I will recommend install always your software since in C Drive, they run faster there and they are managed better there so click on 'Next' and click on 'Install'.
