Description

From #4336:

I usually run Tor in a Win7 user account and have been running a 0.2.2.33 relay without any problems. Now the updated 0.2.2.34 Tor crashes after running for about a minute.

To upgrade I shut down the running 0.2.2.33 relay and switched to the system's admin account. I uninstalled the existing Vidalia Bundle and installed vidalia-relay-bundle-0.2.2.34-0.2.15.exe.

I switched back to the user account and ran Vidalia, using the existing Tor and Vidalia config files. First problem: Vidalia can't find the Tor executable because the installation location has changed. I pointed Vidalia to the correct location.

We may have a ticket or three dozen open for this already, but we really need the system-wide installable bundles to really be installed system-wide.
