Customize installation path of Visual Studio

If the default graphical UI of the installer does not allow for customization of the destination path for installation of Visual Studio, there is still a way to adjust it.
Visual Studio (in this case 2013) installer accepts command-line parameters.
/CustomInstallPath parameter (reference) should help in this case.

Here is another useful utility - TaskKill, which can kill (/im /f) all instances of the installation executable in case it starts multiplying own processes.
