Updated exe data moved to Virtual Folder

that was changeable by our software (delphi based) in the program files
folder as per MS instructions. We now have the program exe in program files
but data in
Works a treat.
However, sometimes when users download a new version of the exe from our ftp

We move it back to the correct place and everything is ok.
Can anyone shed any light on why this might happen ?
