Parent directory error
If you choose custom or express you should get an error because the parent directory doesn't exist. ( default path )
Workaround: choose custom and select a folder which actually exist ( create an empty one )
You can also create the default "parent folder" "<windows drive>:\Program Files (x86)\UGX Mods\" and then try express again.
This will be fixed in the next version!
If you choose "Custom installation" you get some more options before the installation process starts.
