What are these 3 EXE files you mention and why try and install more than 1 versions of XAMPP when for most the full Basic Package plus the Tomcat addon is all that is usually required?

This question is answered on the XAMPP for Windows home page in the installation instructions.
BTW, you are logged into Vista as an administrator and have disabled UAC before attempting to install a complex set of files and folders that may require to write to Vista system folders?
AFAIK the full Basic Package version of XAMPP does most of the work automagically when you answer the questions in the installation setup script.
BTW if what you want is not done automagically during install then you can always add to the start menu folder anything you want manually - you can even create manually shortcuts on the desktop to those files you want to access frequently.
