I have been using MikTeX for about a year, on Windows 7 64- bit. I am 
not an expert, but I have found that the "Admin" entry always works fine 
for me. l suppose the other entry is there for users who don't have 
Administrative (i.e. root) access to the machine. My understanding is 
that it may not work, depending on installation directory or something else.

So if the user has Administrative access, the answer is, use the Admin
