      Hi Eric

      Yes, both 6 and then 7 were installed in the same folder.

      That would likely mean that 7 replaced some 6 components with entirely
      new ones, but perhaps the same name. A subsequent XP Remove Program
      command applied to what it thought was 6 would then have crippled 7.

      It is not the first time that System Restore has saved the day after a
      poor choice on my part.

      7 works fine now and I have a big hard drive so I really don't care
      now if anything actually remains from 6. (Probably not as much space
      as XP's Add or Remove Programs thinks, if the 7 install overwrote
      lots/most of 6's files.)

      Thank you for not only creating a world class program, but going to
      extraordinary lengths to improve it and help users.
