Downloaded Vidalia Relay Bundle from
sha1sum 6157dfb5fa8690e3451beefcb003bc4999dd8508

MS Win 7 64 bit
Ran installer, allowed elevation when requested.
Accepted default installation path.
Did not opt to run directly after installing.
Launched Vidalia from Start menu entry.
Received message: "Vidalia was unable to start Tor. Check your settings..."
Vidalia was trying to locate tor.exe as "C:\Program Files (x86)\Tor\tor.exe", but the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Tor" directory did not exist.

Manually configuring the tor.exe location to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Vidalia Relay Bundle\Tor\tor.exe" (and closing existing instances of Vidalia) allowed Vidalia to run and start tor.exe without errors.

The default configuration seems to be set as "Run as a client only". Perhaps this should be "Relay traffic inside the Tor network (non-exit relay)".

No Vidalia Bundles built anymore. Nothing to fix and/or everything was fixed auto-magically.
