Yes, I've done that but nothing...

@mitchell65
It's a download, I'm not sure from where since I don't keep track of all my downloads but it's some sort of image (.iso file) that has an automatic installer and once it starts running, the "select destination" window pops up.

I'm not into gaming but this looks like a game to me? If so could it be a torrent download? I'm asking these questions because i think the download might be corrupt and it might be necessary for you to download it again. Could you find where it came from if you wanted to download it again?
What you might try is creating another folder in the "C" drive named something like "Program Files 2" and installing it there!

I'm gonna try that but it's a bit illogical that a folder appears somewhere and not in another place... I'm not certain but I do believe it was a torrent, the file wasn't corrupt because the iso file was extrected from severall rar files, if they where corrupt I wouldn't have been able to extract the image file...

It means when you installed the application was not given Administrator privileges (Run as Admin). When it tried to write to a protected location Windiows Virualized it and redirect it to the VirualStore.

Okay, thank you so much, I'll try to install it correctly and will say if it worked or not later.
