I don't know anything about vista, but the libraries for windows XP
are installed in the same place for each version there is a parallel
installation.  This is by design.
sorry I can't be of more help

Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are
so little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and
make us feel like gods. We are mammals, and have not exhausted the
annoying little problems of being mammals.
