Either add a command line argument for directory, or add install instructions for passing USERPROFILE="D:\your_custom_directory" when running the batch file.

Or maybe a prompt?

Finally, you need to open the babun.bat and and edit the reference to %USERPROFILE% to your custom folder. It would be good if this could be automated, but I can understand if it's just a manual step for custom install.

The reason is that in some corporate networks, you cannot install to your profile, as they must be below a certain size, as they are portable on the whole network... As such I've installed mine locally, and so far it seems to work.

That is a great idea! Would you like to add this switch to the install.bat script? :)
install.bat /target="C:/..." ?

Perfect! Would be great if the install.bat script could check if there's a space in the default USER_PROFILE, to abort the installation in such case.
Then the user would have to specify the /target with a custom folder.
Thanks!

1.0.1 has been just released. You can install to a custom folder using the /t option of the install.bat script.
