Since I don't have Windows, I don't know the details of this installation. It is confusing some of my students, so I hope someone can answer a couple questions that I can pass on.

1. Why doesn't this install GRASS in the 'normal' Windows programs location? And where *does* it install GRASS (so people can add it to their launch pad).

2. Where does it install the demo data?

3. A couple students noted that they are finding GRASS 7.8.1 and 7.8.5 on their computers. Does OSGEO4W install a couple of different versions? Or is this something they did and forgot?

4. Are all current Windows installations 64bit or does this vary by computer?
