Comment (by mwtoews):

 I had this too, but I realized it was because I double-clicked the
 installer from Firefox's "Downloads" window, which I guess sets the
 current working directory for the installer to be the same as the parent
 application (Firefox).

 If you double-clicked the installer from Windows Explorer in the location
 where it downloaded (e.g., Desktop) then the local package directory will
 be based from that location.

 I'd expect the local package directory to default to the same directory as
 the installer, not the app work directory.

 E.g., path to installer:
 C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\osgeo4w-setup.exe
 ... should use a default local package directory:
 C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop

 I'd expect this to be a simple fix, except I don't know where to look.
