(This is a reminder to myself, unless someone gets a patch in sooner than I get to it.)

Currently if you click "Customize" in the installer and then Next/Install without changing any settings, you get a default per-machine installation. However, if you click the Install Now button at the start, you get a default per-user installation.

The customize settings default should be changed to do a per-user install. We also need logic in the BA to enable Precompile Standard Library automatically when the all-users setting is enabled, otherwise people will miss that option.
