I've looked more closely at what happens when installing ver 4 in a 
non-Program Files folder in my Vistax64 with ver 3 already installed in 
Program Files. Ver 3 files (sans soffice.exe and other executables) are 
backed up to Roaming\LibreOffice\3 while the user-specific files (including 
executables) for ver 4 are put into ...\4 . Other parts of ver 4 go into 
the folder I chose during installation. Finally, LO 3 & LO 3 Help are 
replaced in Control Panel\Programs and Features with LO 4 & LO 4 Help.

So it's a pretty clean upgrade process. Since LO 4 is working as it should, 
I don't really need to check it against LO 3 as I thought. I discovered how 
this process works when looking to remove LO 3, which isn't there. All's 
well, I'm just posting so as not to inadvertently lead others running Vista 
astray by my previous posting. - edo1

Installing ver 4 in Vista x64 in some folder outside of "C:\Program Files
(x86)" is OK.  Just choosing the desired folder in the course of
installation works fine, I didn't have to do this via the command prompt.
  Still, it was useful knowing that and I appreciate timllloyd's pointing
me to the tutorial - edo1
