Make it possible to change the folder for My Documents during installation of LabVIEW

Status: Declined
Moved to CAR Database: CAR 448899

When installing LabVIEW or and Executable with the RunTime-Engine, the installer needs Access to the My Documents folder. If the installer didn't find these folder (e.g. the folder is redirechted to a server path), the installation fails. Please make it possible to change the used folder for My Documents during the installation.
