If D:\MyApps\test is only for testing, then it's best to use the Command line specification, which will overwrite the setting in the MSI during the installation.  If the path is to be the default location for the install, then edit INSTALLDIR in the MSI.

Make sure you don't try to force the install to happen to the D: drive via the INSTALLDIR property; instead, you should use ROOTDRIVE.  Also make sure you don't specify the two folders as one entry in the Directory table.
