I purchased MS Office Pro 2016 (home use license) last week, and I forked over the extra for a physical disk. I downloaded the installer and ran it. It automatically installed to my C:. I uninstalled it. I don’t want it on my C:. I called the customer service, and was told that I could change the directory if I installed from the disk.
I received the disk today, and guess what? It automatically installed everything to my C:. I uninstalled and called customer service. I got put on hold three times and was finally told that I had no choice on where to install it, and that C: was it. I asked about a refund, and guess what? No refunds. My choices appear to be, install the @#$@# thing on my C: and keep a very close eye on my free space, or eat the loss and install Open Office.
I just had to re-install my OS last week because my system drive got too full due to Windows bloat. Right now I have about 49 GB of free space, so I should be good for a couple of years, but since when do you not have a choice on where to install a program?!
