I've seen this on two computers.

The installer tries to install to C:\Users\[Profile Name]\AppData\Local\ElectricMobileStudio2012

    This is by design. We had issues with almost any other default location.

    Ok, that's weird. I've never seen a program try to install to that path before. I manually set the installer to use the program files folder (as the previous version did):

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Electric Plum\Electric Mobile Studio 2012

    Is there going to be a problem with having it installed here? Should I uninstall it and reinstall it to the AppData folder?

    I'm not having any issues with launching it or VS 2015 integration.
