Suggestion: Install for all user accounts

Right now, FastPictureViewer is installed only for the user account that runs the installation. That means on a computer of which multiple members of a household (such as a husband, a wife and a child) use, only the installing user has proper Start Menu and Desktop shortcuts. To make the application available for everyone, the Start Menu and Desktop shortcuts must be deleted and new icons and shortcuts must be created. (No, there is no use moving the shortcuts into public desktop or public start menu, since the shortcuts are hardlinked to per-user Windows Installer database of the installing user which is inaccessible to other user accounts.)

I suggest that the next version of FastPictureViewer should be capable of being installed for all users, thus reducing the hassle of tweaking shortcuts in a multiuser environment.

Thanks in advance

Starting from v1.0.117.0 the program is installed per machine (vs. per user before), this should fix the "family computer" issue. Perhaps its best to uninstall the current version first (from control panel), then install build 117 or later.
