I'm on Vista, so I try not to muck with the PATH variables. I find that the more I change on the lower levels of the system, the more things get messed up.

I miss Windows 7. Anyway, that should work for everyone. If, like me, you find that you used the "incorrect" version of the short-cut and you want to edit it so that it works right, just quit Notepad++, navigate to your user folder, AppData (it's a hidden folder), Roaming, Notepad++ and edit your shortcuts.xml file so that the correct path is pointed to. Make sure you don't edit it in Notepad++ as... as that won't work.
