SolidWorks 2011 File Location Bug

Windows 7, 64bit os.  I have SW 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 all installed (all latest service packs, all 64 bit where available).  2011 is giving me problems with system settings and file locations that I have never had before with multiple installs.  I need all 4 versions (consultancy that supports clients using old versions).


I can set all my file locations and search paths, save them off using Copy Settings Wizard and have everything working correctly.  If I close 2011 and open it back up all my settings are preserved.  If I close 2011 and launch 2010, close 2010 and re-launch 2010 all my settings change to the 2010 version, so all my pathing is screwed up.  I can run Copy Settings to restore them, but that is tiring when I am switching between 2010 and 2011 multiple times a day.  We are also experiencing this issue on other machines in the office that also switch between 2011 and 2010.


Any one see anything like this?
