This is the address for Windows Paint in Win 7 %windir%\system32\mspaint.exe but why would you copy the Vista version to your system?

It's already there under Start/All Programs/Accessories.

According to the artistic lad that set me the task, the Win 7 version of Paint is better in some areas, but in others it is a lot worse: it does not allow freehand drawing of multiple lines as easily as the Vista version did.
I've tried copying it into System32, and renaming the Win 7 version but it will not open up, so the Vista version needs to be installed so that the Registry knows it is there, but how to has baffled me.
