I'm not sure whether I got the latest version for Win7

The installer refers to an old D:\lazarus931\ folder, possibly found in 
my user settings. I couldn't find out how to install it in a "clean" 
way, into D:\lazarus934\, independently from existing installations. The 
"IDE Internals" show an mix from several installations:

Lazarus version:
Lazarus svn revision: 35940
Lazarus build date: 2012/03/14
Lazarus was compiled for i386-win32
Lazarus was compiled with fpc 2.6.0

Global IDE options:
Primary config directory=C:\Users\dodi\AppData\Local\lazarus
Secondary config directory=D:\lazarus934
Real CompilerFilename=D:\lazarus931\fpc\2.4.4\bin\i386-win32\fpc.exe
FPC source directory=D:\lazarus931\fpc\2.4.4\source\
Real FPC source directory=D:\lazarus931\fpc\2.4.4\source\
Test directory=C:\Users\dodi\AppData\Local\Temp\

It looks as if the desktop shortcut
is incomplete, lacking the proper -pcp

After adding
still something's wrong with the settings. The IDE Internals now look good:

Global IDE options:
Primary config directory=D:\lazarus934\
Secondary config directory=D:\lazarus934
Real CompilerFilename=D:\lazarus934\fpc\2.6.0\bin\i386-win32\fpc.exe
FPC source directory=$(LazarusDir)fpc\$(FPCVer)\source\
Real FPC source directory=D:\lazarus934\fpc\2.6.0\source\
Test directory=C:\Users\dodi\AppData\Local\Temp\

also the fpc.cfg in above bin directory looks correct, but at startup a 
"Fehler" box appears, telling that the expected target files were not 
found. The FPC Internals show the default Path:

Environment variables:
Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTSystem\;C:\Program 

which obviously includes a very old Lazarus/FPC bin directory. What can 
I do to clear the PATH, so that it only contains the minimal set of 
directories required to run Lazarus, without affecting other applications?
