No - what should not be done is installing in 'Program Files' this will cause problems with certain functions due to spaces in the path.

XAMPP SHOULD be installed in the root of C:

When you unpack - make the target c: (not c:\xampp) - the extraction process will create the XAMPP folder for you.

Good Luck
:D
