I downloaded the win32 installer from the ftp site and started it.
While in the setup dialogs I found that it installs what it calls the

Does this mean that it installs a new version of lazarus as well???
If not, what is the FPC IDE? Another development environment???

I was about to install fpc into c:\Programs\lazarus\fpc\2.4.2, but now
I am not so sure because of the confusing dialogs. :-(

The c:\Programs\lazarus\fpc\2.2.4 folder was where the Lazarus

put 2.4.2 in parallel to that version in folder 2.4.2.

But that was before I saw the IDE questions popping up...
