Unable to change the name of a folder in c:/program files

Hi, I am installing a program called AutoCAD and I am having trouble changing the new file folder in c:/program files to a new name, preferably AutoCAD Programs.  Could someone help me?

Hi

It may not be possible to change the name of the folder where the program is being installed.

All of the shortcuts, registry keys, and other paths that are installed may be hard coded to refer to that name and path when it is running.
