I've managed to change my "Program Files" location so it is my E:\ drive, and when I install 64bit applications it automatically wants to install to E:\Program Files (which is a good thing)
However, I can't seem to make "Program Files (x86)" change too. I've uninstalled everything from there, but when I install 32 bit programs it wants by default to install to C:\Program Files (x86) , instead of E:\Program Files (x86).

How can I change the default install location of 32 bit applications too? Here is what the registry page looks like that I changed everything in:


(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion)

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit if you didn't realise already :)
Many thanks
