Shudder indeed :-) Yes, that is an option. Nick Knight did create an 
InstallShield .iss file, but I don't have an InstallShield license so I 
have no means to use it. I've been thinking about creating an NSIS 
installer, but haven't got a round tuit yet.

Manipulating paths in config files won't help, since we have to find the 
config files first, that's the problem. :-)

Cheers, Chris.
