But it looks strange if I have the simcpl mentioned in the registry
with a path to the CVSNT install folder:
*Two* Control Panel applets show up with different fish icons...

If I change to cvsnt.cpl in the registry then only one icon shows up
and this is the new one.

I made the following experiment:
- Registry mentions cvsnt.cpl
- Checked Control Panel: one icon shown
- Moved away the cvsnt.cpl file
- Control Panel does not show anything
- Changed registry entry to simcpl.cpl: nothing in Control Panel
- Moved back cvsnt.cpl: Control Panel shows *two* icons
- Changed registry entry to cvsnt.cpl
- Control Panel: Only one icon remains

Really confusing, especially this double icon thing...
