Why does lightroom CC only install to C:

Many/most computers today ship with a small SSD designed for your OS installation. Most programs today (and truly, for the last decades, allow you to select your install location).

Why doesn't lightroom support this when most other CC apps do?

Especially when people pay to get CC despite having a perpetual lightroom license on an install that used to install properly.

Actually, more and more apps do not ask and just install on C, which as you say, is a real pain. Everything is getting dumbed down.

I'm running the installer just to see what happens when it realizes there isn't space, hopefully it fails before uninstalling my working standalone lol. The fun thing is CC has an option to specify install location but no hint that some apps may simply ignore it.
