Definitely not... i would really recommend using "program files" because this 
is THE place where windows-programs are installled for most of the users... at 
least this should be the default place your installer should recommend because 
if a user wants it at different place he is able to change this, isn't he? At 
least i hope so, because any installer which doesn't allow where to install the 
stuff is quite useless...
