Re: Two Versions of Program
While programs install to C:\Program Files, the programs don't actually
write to that folder by design due to security concerns (which you override
when you use the 'run as admin' option). Instead, Vista uses a file
virtualization, and the programs run from and write data to
%userprofile%\appdata\local\VirtualStore. Your data files should be placed
in the appropriate folder under this location.
