Did you switch the directory name right at the start or did you
switch to the next dialog and then back to the one asking for the
installation dir? This must not happen. As soon as you pressed the
"Next" button, you lost. In that case you have to exit setup-1.7
and restart it.
Alternatively create a registry REG_SZ value
"HKLM/SOFTWARE/Cygwin/setup/rootdir" and set it to the Win32 path of the
new directory you want to install Cygwin 1.7 in, before starting
