Could any one please help me with changing the .exe package extraction path of a Windows Server 2008 Standard edition.

I am trying to install MSSQL Express edition but it is trying to extract files to N:\ drive. Not only with SQL it is common with some other .exe packages as well. I want to change it to some other drive.

Please advice.

What is drive N: on your system? Does it happen to be your home directory? –  Zoredache Oct 4 '12 at 3:33
No no it's my file server drive. I newly created it. –  Learner Oct 4 '12 at 10:57

Not really enough information to help here, also we're not "support." "Support" gets paid. –  HopelessN00b Oct 9 '12 at 4:16
