Under Windows all versions of the REBOL interpreter are called rebol.exe, for instance. So you will have to either rename them, or install them in separate directories. REBOL/View (if I recall correctly), creates a REBOL directory in \Program Files and creates a view directory in the REBOL directory. Core and Command would also normally belong in their own directories. This may be important because you may want to have different entries in the user.r file for different REBOL versions.

You could also call /Core files filename.r, /View files that include /View specific stuff filename.rv and /Command files filename.rc. That would avoid confusion as well.
