The IndexLocation string value in the registry sets the path, as the
above docs state.

ActiveX security doesn't allow trusted controls to specify arbitrary
filenames.  There has been some discussion on how to improve that.  I
will patch swishctl to support multiple index location values before
2.4.0 releases, though.

Probably 2.3.5 which is an old development release.

I'm not sure the setup program is completely usable right now.  And it's
not documented at all.

Well, it's a fairly new program.  A few people have used it, though. 
I've not had time to give it much attention of it's own.  I plan to
spend some time on it once SWISH-E 2.4 releases.
