Thanks, after a more thorough search of the registry for everything with
the string "monet" fixed the problem. It wasn't fast and easy though, but I
could reinstall, with the update, to the new location.

By the way, the Windows batch was surprisingly hard to edit to make use the
right folder (specified path) for the dbfarm, I often ended back somewhere
under C:/AppData even though now both the installation and the intended
path were on Q:/. In any case, this seems to be fixed now. Thanks!
