Bug Description

Automated installs of SBCL are complicated by the fact its MSI install script ignores the target directory specifier.

For example, issuing the following command on Windows 7 still installs SBCL to C:/Program Files/SBCL/1.0.37:

msiexec /package sbcl-1.0.37-x86-windows-binary.msi /qn TARGETDIR="c:\Program Files\ICW\usr\local\"

description: updated
Changed in sbcl:
importance: Undecided → Medium
status: New → Triaged

worked well for me.
