When UniPlot is started from the new location, three UniPlot Icons (in the Start menu, on the Desktop and in the Quick Launch menu bar) are created and all the necessary registry settings are saved in the system registry for the current user. You can find all keys that will be saved in the registry in the script\uniplot\post-install.ic file.
