I am trying to install ORCA from the Orca.msi that comes with Windows Installer Platform SDK. I am using the following command-line and I wish to install this on D: instead of C:.

msiexec /i orca.msi ROOTDRIVE="D:"

However, on the UI screens if I choose the Custom Installation step, the default folder location is still shown to be "C:\Program Files\Orca". If I do a silent install like:

msiexec /qn /i orca.msi ROOTDRIVE="D:"

this installs everything on "C:\Program Files\Orca".

Next I tried a few more properties:

msiexec /i orca.msi ROOTDRIVE="D:" ARPINSTALLLOCATION="D:\Orca"
msiexec /i orca.msi ROOTDRIVE="D:" PRIMARYFOLDER="D:\Orca"

None of these had any effect. Any clues would help.
