Yeah, it still installs under the x86 Program Files folder.

Windows 7 32 bit

Hmmmmm, they should come up with some better way to do shell extensions than that IContextMenu COM stuff. Most people aren't all the psyched about COM in the first place. Redoing all that in 64 bit seems lame. There should be some way to just chain into it that's architecture independent. Definitely needs to be reworked fast. I don't think Best Buy is selling very many desktops these days with a 32 bit OS on 'em. Seems like any tower over $400 has 4+ GB ram and Vista64 on it.
