Anywhere you like in a desktop folder would be fine.Then click on the set up icon.After it has installed you can delete the folder

it shouldn't be asking the question, unless you have chosen "custom install"

If you really do need to tell it where to install to,it should be your system 32 folder within the Windows folder.
Or system 64,if it's a 64 bit operating system.
