[PD] pd-extended is not extended

Ok, I manually added a library in preferences/startup (which worked 
after restarting pd) and searched for it in the registry, thus figuring 
out that the startup settings are being saved to and loaded from:



1) Is it an error in the .reg file that stores the settings in a 
location different from that actually used by pd, or is it Vista that 
uses a different location than XP? or is it some setting in Windows that 
the user can change (obviously for all programs but I wouldn't mind)?

2) My other question remains that is: how can I have a PD extended and a 
PD Vanilla on the same computer?
