Having a major issue currently with installing my AutoDesk Ultimate Suite. Problem is quite simple while the solution seems to be rather annoying. I have my computer built in a newer, more technology update fashion. I run a small yet fast SSD to only run my OS. The issue is this leaves practically no additonal space on my boot C: drive. I have a couple of other hard drives specifically for music, games, other very large programs. Well like any other major brand of software AutoDesk is attempting to install all of the Product suite, which is around 8-9GB of data on my boot drive C:. Put simply I just can not do that, the issue is I have not found a way to install the program on my alternative (non boot) drives and am quite frustrated.
I am currently very frustrated as this install process seems to be very old fashion as new technology has surpassed the needs to have a massive, yet very slow main C: drive.
Of course as luck would be it I can not get in contact with anyone from AutoDesk.
look to this site >>>here<<<, you'll find the installation procedure described for Suites, version 2013.
Scrolling downwards you find the following screenshot (where I marked now the destination folder for installation):
And I hope your Autodesk Ultimate Suite 2013 looks similar to that screenshot.
Anyway, let me discuss a few points to your situation:
I know that SSD is not the cheapest way for upgrading, but if the size of the SSD is as small as just has space for OS then this investment is not the best one I think.
Just my 2c

alfred is right
it has to install parts of the program to the OS drive this is usually a requirement by microsoft to be a windows certified program nothing autodesk can do about it
