The location of the environment installation folder depends on where you have installed the software. You cannot select the installation folder for the environments in the environment installation wizard.

Software is installed under the \Program Files\Tekla Structures\<version>\ folder.
Environments and extensions are installed under the \ProgramData\Trimble\Tekla Structures\<version> folder.
User settings are installed under the \Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Trimble\Tekla Structures\<version> folder.

When you install a new Tekla Structures version, make sure that the installation folder does not contain any files from other Tekla Structures versions. This is to ensure that you get all the files that are included in the installation package.
Note that when you are installing a service pack and you already have the related Tekla Structures version or a previous service pack installed, you cannot select the installation folder. The service pack will be installed to the same folder as the related Tekla Structures version or the service pack that you are updating. The installation folder will contain files from the related Tekla Structures version or the previous service pack. Installing the new service pack will automatically remove the old files before copying the new files. Note that if you have your own files in the installation folder, these files will remain unchanged in the folder.
When you have installed the software and the environments, you can check the installation paths in Windows Control Panel.
If you need to install Tekla Structures to a folder that has a non-Unicode folder name, for example, in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, or Russian, change the language in XS_STD_LOCALE and the Windows system locale in Windows Control Panel to that same language so that Tekla Structures can work normally.
