Thanks - all working now.  I uninstalled KDE following your suggestion and
created a new KDE folder as per your last line.  I then installed using the
MSVC build and all installed successfully.  Off to have a good look at
Kmymoney now!

You can not change that option without reinstalling.

A fast way to uninstall KDE is the following
1) Execute "Shutdown KDE" (kwinshutdown.exe), to stop KDE related process
2) Rename your KDE folder to KDE-back (if some process is running you will
not be able to rename)
3) Launch KDE installer.

Note: Step 2) will left all menu entries pointing to a folder that doesn't
exist anymore, but you can delete them by hand. If you reinstall at the same
folder they will be correct again.

If you are on Windows Vista, or 7 (8?), the "Program Files" folder is
protected, and any program requires explicit permission from the user to
write, which is very annoying.

Since KDE doesn't require to be installed in ProgramFiles, you can install
it in any place writable by your user. I usually install it at
c:\Users\foobar\KDE, where "foobar" is my username.
