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.
