Installer Quirk with Google Desktop Search Plug-in

A few of our users found a problem with the installer for the Google Desktop Search Plug-in:
When the user selects “Everyone” in the installation instead of “Just me”, the installer will work but you won't see the MindManager plug-in in the plug-in list.
It will work if you reinstall the plug-in and select “Just me” in the Select Installation Folder step. I sent a question to Google to see if there is a work-around. It seems that this is a "known problem" with Google Desktop Search.

What exactly is the error? Could you break it down in layman's terms?

When you install the plug-in for Everyone, you don't see the MindManager Plug-in listed in the Google Desktop preferences. Reinstalling it for "Just me" works or typing this command from Start...Run...
regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Mindjet\Google Desktop Search Plug-in\MindManagerPlugin.dll"
