I generally don't like to install my games/downloads on the same disk as my windows installation, is it possible to choose the drive/directory to install the galaxy client to?
At the moment this is not possible. But the client isnt even released yet and this isn't the final version, so we can expect changes in the future.

Ok, thanks for the info.
Let's hope this changes in the future :-)
Just create a symbolic link using MKLINK function (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753194.aspx) for Windows Vista and higher or download Junction (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896768.aspx) for Win 2000 and XP. Also, if you are comfortable editing the registry, you can relocate your Program Files directory by editing the proper registry key (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933700). Works great for me and I've used both methods. I made the mistake of buying a 60GB SSD instead of at least a 120GB when I built my rig. I should have spent the extra cash for an upgrade.

That's nice. So basically I can't test Galaxy. Or perhaps I should say that my bug report is as follows:

Showstopper: Cannot install Galaxy platform. Reproduction: attempt to install Galaxy to a system where games are not installed to the drive on which Windows is installed.

I don't really get it. I can install AvP to any folder or directory that I want. Why is this not possible with Galaxy? I'm not trying to criticize GoG's decisions, there may very well be a good reason why they chose to do this, but it is baffling.

There are many reasons why I might wish to relocate my entire program files directory or alter my registry, but installing a beta test product is not one of them. And if I did so, it would probably defeat the entire purpose of my participation in a beta test, since it would add so many extra ways that bugs and system failures could occur.
May be part of galaxy not being released yet. At least hopefully that's the case.
