I am about to get a win 8 pc.

With build 600 and above, should i still install mt4 outside of Program files? I currently have all my MT4 installs in c:/MetaTrader in Win7, so to avoid issues with UAC and Tickdatasuite and backtesting.

With the new builds will everything work properly if installed to Program files? I am hoping that I then get the benefit of warnings about potential program updates, that I didn't get because I was not installed in Program files in WIN7.

You can install in Program Files under Window 8 without any problem.
