Thanks to Jim and others for the help.
I have now installed V7 on my second hard drive, by copying the complete
folder, where it opened OK except for the file that is needed for using
the LPT port (which I don't need).
I had noticed that my install of V8 is in C:\ so I was going to ask
about that, but Jim has given me the answer before I asked it!
Now I just need to plan the upgrade to V8.. I have rather a mess of
text comments in the notes for this call and notes for this QSO, so I
think I am going to have some "fun" rationalising these..
Again, thank for the help.

Do not use *either* for DX4WIN. Windows 7 and beyond place much more
stringent protections on these directories. You may find that you
will be unable to save your log and/or update data files.
Install it as C:\DX4W7## (the path suggested by 8.05) or some other
partition in your system, but do *not* install under Program Files.
In fact, you do not really even need to install it, because DX4WIN
does not use the Windows registry. Just copy your entire DX4W7##
directory (including all subdirectories) from the XP machine to the
Win7 machine. You can do this with a USB flash drive. Then simply
create a shortcut on your desktop to run "dx4win.exe" in the new
