Using Windows MSI installer for v5.2.3.

If user selects different installation path from default (C:\Program Files\PHP) and changes to something like C:\PHP5, on next installation page (after user clicks NEXT) the shown INSTALLATION PATH with NOT reflect user's changed path, but default.   USER must BROWSE and CHANGE in order for the installation to properly install to new path... otherwise two disjoint directories created (C:\Program Files\PHP and C:\PHP5).

Reproduce code:
Not applicable.

Expected result:
User should be able to change default installation path ONCE.   Not clear need to specify on second installation page/options.

Actual result:
Not applicable.

It is not the next installation page, it is where the EXTENSION and installable options are chosen... at the bottom it defaults to "C:\Program Files\PHP" even if the user changed earlier to "C:\PHP5".   If the user clicks on BROWSE to the right, they are shown "C:\PHP5" (ie it changes to proper value) and then clicking OK sets this correctly.   If you don't do this, it will use the DEFAULT path shown ("C:\Program Files\PHP")... with your PHP maincode installed in "C:\PHP5"... a bit of a pain.
