steam/steamapps/sourcemods

nowhere

Can't you just change the directory the Hidden installer is installing into? Or move the folder it installs to the wrong directory to the right one.

The installer checks your registry for the sourcemods folder location and will install to it - it will however get it wrong if you've moved the steam folder after you installed steam.

So, the answer is, if you've got a fresh install of steam and haven't moved it from wherever you told it to install to, our installer will work fine - once the installer has finished, restart steam to have the mod appear on your games list.
