Post FlowerPot installation, how do I maintain multiple WinUAE installations?

I had a working WinUAE installation then I installed FlowerPot.

It ignored the current WinUAE installation and overwrote the existing registry entries with paths pointing to the FlowerPot program folder (of which I was not given the option to choose where that would be). Also, that mean's that *data* files are forced to be in the "Program Files (x86)" folder (poor form, grrr!).

How do I get these 2 WinUAE installations to peacefully coexist?

Would you like to reconsider how you've designed the FlowerPot installer and release an update?

Hi Seanys,

Flower Pot for Windows does not changes registry or anything like that. It just copies Flower Pot to your computer. You can simply move the installed FlowerPot folder to different location.

The path issue you described is probably caused by WinUAE itself. You might want to try the "Reset to defaults" or "Portable mode" button in WinUAE/Paths tab when running your original WinUAE installation. Or check its support forum here: http://eab.abime.net/forumdisplay.php?f=5

I am sorry for the inconvenience.
