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
target directory.
