Installing Under Vista

    Revised INSTALL-win32.txt including instructions for installing under Windows Vista:

    To use this plugin with your regular Gaim installation, extract and copy
    the extprefs.dll file from the zip file to your Gaim user plugins folder:

        Windows 95/98/Me:
        c:\windows\Application Data\.gaim\plugins (default user)
        c:\windows\profiles\<username>\Application Data\.gaim\plugins

        Windows NT 4.0:
        c:\winnt\profiles\<username>\Application Data\.gaim\plugins

        Windows 2000/XP/2003:
        c:\documents and settings\<username>\Application Data\.gaim\plugins

        Windows Vista:

    Note: Be sure to delete any older extendedprefs.dll file, as older versions
    of this plugin had a different filename.

    The "plugins" folder will not exist unless you have previously installed a
    3rd party plugin there.  You should create this folder on your own and place
    the plugin there.

    If you are unable to locate ".gaim" in your "Application Data" folder, please
    either run Gaim once so that it creates this folder or create the ".gaim"
    folder manually.

    Then simply start or restart Gaim and load the plugin from the Gaim
    preferences dialog.

      Thanks for the update, I'll make the change in the INSTALL-win32 file.
