Hi Rich:

I'm stumped.  Based on 2., I don't see how VirtualStore would ever work.
I guess Dan's suggestion of installing software outside of C:\Program 
Files is the only answer.  But, this means we would need to change our
installation instructions accordingly; defining PATH, R_LIBS, etc.
But, since I have no plans to test this out, then I guess I have no
plans to fix the documentation either.  Hopefully, Windows 7 users will
find this discussion as needed.
