Which is correct.  Where cvs.exe itself goes is irrelevant.   cvsnt *is* 
stored in the location you specify.  It has a lot of dependencies and 
the .exe is just one element.

Also correct.  I changed it precisely because you were complaining about 
the earlier build having two CVSNT directories.

3rd party tools are unaffected because InstallPath still points to the 
location of the .exe.
