Summary0001563: Problem installing on Windows Vista (64-bit)

I've tried to install Graphviz (to be used together with Doxygen) on
my 64-bit Vista machine. According to the installation process the
installation seems to be OK. I can start dotty and GVedit from the
Programs menu. The strange thing is that the programs are installed in
the root directory of my E drive (E:\ contains now bin, lib, etc,
include and share sub directories), although I specified the default
path in the installation GUI.
Why is the package installed on the E drive ?
Doxygen does not recognize / cannot find the dot tool, although its
path is explicitly specified in the Doxyfile.

On an other machine without an E drive the installation is OK, and works
together with Doxygen.
Additional Information

[arif] Very strange.
Is your windows installed on drive E: ?

This issue still exists with the current version 2.28.0 on windows 7.
I have the msi file in the root of the D drive (other places give the same results) and I want to install it in a (non existing) directory on the D drive. The installer doesn't do this but installs it in the root directory of the M drive (This is a network drive and contains my network home directory).

When installing it on my private stand alone Vista machine there are no problems.

On Windows 7 I've run run the msi with log option and have a log file. I'll try to upload the file with this bug report, otherwise I;l send it by mail to Arif.

Small note, the original problem mentioned Vista as OS, now I'm mentioning Windows 7; it is the same machine connected to the same network but in the mean time the OS changed so it looks like, guessing, it has to do something with the network binding / home directory on the network ?
