I use npackd for installing specific components of my system from the private repo. Not only software from the internet. I would like to define multiple Installation Directories on Settings Page. Then I would like to specify in XML repo which Installation Directory the package should go to. The default would be let say first one (e.g. "Program Files"). What do you think?

Thanks 👍

One of the reasons to modify the default installation path is missing free disk space on C:. Defining the target directory in the repository .xml file would be wrong in this case.

What are the criteria for deciding where a particular package should be installed?

A global setting allowing to specify a destination directory (or at least, drive letter) would be nice to have (either through GUI or a config file). Btw @tim-lebedkov thanks for reviewing Mixxx and adding the 32-bit version!

In my case its the type of the package would decide where to install it. For example regular applicatins go to "C:\Program Files". But I also use npackd to distribute my deliverables to the buddies. This kind of packages would be stored in e.g. "C:\Deliverables". It's not the most critical issue though...
