I'm confused why this attempts to install to an F drive by default (decision-wise, not tech-wise; I'm aware that's what it states in the .iss config). Most Windows setups default to C drive. I'm not directly accusing you yet, but the only reason I can think to do that is to make a virus more difficult to find.

Thank you for the input; it is definitely the variables used  by the developer; will correct and adjust;
