Defraggler64.exe to be installed in "C:\Program files"

I agree. The 64 bits versions should be installed in a "C:\Program files" subfolder and the 32 bits version in a "c:\program files" subfolder but that's NOT the case.

because I use the Portable versions which unzip to whatever path I designate.
It is an utterly stupid convention that Microsoft just did not think through and should be abandoned.
This would NOT be such an utterly stupid convention if Microsoft had provided corresponding folders of :-
"C:\ProgramData (x86)\" ; and
"C:\Users\Alan\AppData (x86)\" etc
in which case for the odd person that wishes to install non-portable versions of both 32 bit and 64 bit software,
he/she would have separate paths for both the code AND ALSO the corresponding application data.
As it stands my Installed 32 bit version of Palemoon has my user profiles located on paths such as
C:\Users\Alan\AppData\Roaming\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\
which is obviously where the 64 bit version should ALSO be if I wanted to install both 32 bit and 64 bit versions.
