I found (as I hoped) a new version od TeXworks at


(my present version, 0.4.0, appeared to have serious bugs
in the search-and-replace code), but on downloading the
Windows installer and running it, it fails to correctly
identify the installation directory.  At the moment,
0.4.0 is installed in :


but the 0.4.3 installer failed to detect this, and
proposes instead to install in :

	C:\Program Files\TeXworks

I would have expected the installer to correctly identify
the location for a previous install.
