Default Help installing into Program Files instead of (x86)

I can't seem to figure out how a game will let me install it into the program files so I can add mods. Though it wont let me and I dont know how to put into admin while the install wizard is up. Please help.

It will only let me install into programs (x86)

Default Re: Help installing into Program Files instead of (x86)

Since you apparently have both "Program Files" and "Program Files(x86)" folders, it's apparent you are running a 64-bit Windows OS. The game you are trying to install is a 32-bit app so therefore it will be installed in the "Program Files(x86)" folder since that is where 32-bit apps are installed on a 64-bit Windows OS. 64-bit apps are installed in the "Program Files" folder.

Is there a problem where the game won't run or something because it insists on being installed in "Program Files" folder?
