Bug? B4A V5.0 Installer keeps old (V4.30) in Folder -> Old shortcuts fail

I've installed V5.0 over the existing V4.3 (should be ok). On my Desktop I've created shortcuts before (to 4.30).

The new version puts an icon on my desktop, too, so ... On the first view I was wondering why "sometimes" B4a doesn't start ("B4A does not work anymore"). Now it's clear:

In the B4A folder are two *.exe files:

b4a.exe (=V5.0) and Basic4Android.exe (=V4.30)

The old icon on the desktop looks like the new one but points to the old *.exe which does not start anymore. Less a bug but more irritating. Some user might think that V5.0 does not work.

Yep. I know but this might be irritating for other users.

Not touching shortcuts is normal but the old Basic4Android.exe still exists in the main folder...

I assume the name of the exe changed in V5 from Basic4Android.exe to b4a.exe. Before it was no problem because of the same name.

Under WIN8.1 you can see the old AND new B4a icon as a tile.

I never took a look what the name of the b4a.exe was - until today :)
