MySQL Installer 5.6.10 does not allow path changes for new products

This is a Windows 2003 system that has gone from MySQL 5 -> 5.1 -> 5.5 and now we're trying to go to 5.6 using the MySQL Installer 5.6.10 as there is no other installation media available currently.

I'm adding the new 5.6.10 to install coexisting with the current 5.5 however the installer never asks or provides the option of where to install the server to. For some reason it decided to default to C:\Program Files\MySQL\ which is where I have the Workbench installed however the 5.5 server actually resides on the D:\ drive.

I launched the installer and used the Install Updates method to update the existing Workbench then went to Add/Modify and added MySQL Server 5.6.10 and proceeded through the menus. I have gone through them again after removing the 5.6 installation to verify that at no point am I allowed to change the install directory or data path.

The issue too is as there is no standalone 5.6.10 installer I cannot use that to manually place a copy elsewhere on the system.
