that is true sometimes... but I've found that the moment you install your second version
of view ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE and your user.r becomes out of control. what is it with
the install tool copying rebol.exe and the user.r in A home directory !? running a rebol
in a shell and running one in an icon can be different,creating your own aplication icon
will point to the rebol you point to, yet the registry points to a copy in your profile
or home dir, yet the installer asks for an install dir... why !?.
really, I wish rebol/view would let you do a dumb install (or at least ask you) and
NOT play around with the registry... especially when it has to be installed on several
computers at once, and they all share the same network path... maybe RT could just package
on rebol view which does not include the installer (like the beta versions :-)... for
those of us who know how rebol works...
I've said it before so I'll shut up now... everyone is tired of me saying it... ;-)
