Installing 4D 6.0.6:
The installer places an ACI folder at the root level of your start-up disk and completes the installation of the 4D 6 database. There are other, separate components accompanying this database package.
If you install other separate components such as the demo apps and the 4D plug-in extras etc, then do all of the installations you require before moving the ACI folder to any other location. The additional installers, all look for the ACI folder at the root level of your drive and will create fresh ACI folders in that location if you have moved the initial ACI database folder before completing all of your installations.

I recommend that you do install the Demos package (which should have been named "Database Examples") as you can then get a good feel for this program by picking these example apps apart.

This package also installs the 4D Runtime engine:
4D Runtime is designated as Redistributable according to the 4th Dimension License Agreement and can be freely distributed according to the terms and agreements of that license.

Meaning: You can create standalone databases and distribute these to others along with the runtime engine (then 3rd party doesn't need the full 4D application to use your database).
