It works the same way, despite what the installation instructions say. Apparently what fooled me to start with [other than the explicitly incorrect instructions] is that the quick launch icon seems to have been changed to point to the new version. And a very quick look only showed one copy; but a second look showed the old one at a slightly different location. I'm pretty sure it works on Vista just like on XP. Sorry for the confusion.

Okay, my testing has been done on XP Pro sp3, as I have been stating
