i must say i never put pd in program files because of the space. i always
put it right on C:\ but that might be unneeded now

Yes, this breaks with the past, but I think this is the way things
should go.  Pd should be made to behave like a native app on each
platform.  On Windows, programs are installed in Program Files, so Pd
should be also.

With Miller's 0.37 installer and my 0.37 installer, you don't need to
know where to put Pd in order to install it.  Both installers
automatically install into a default location.  I don't remember, is
your tutorial online somewhere?  It would great to have in on
