L3P.exe can switch back and forth between LGEO and Anton's parts interchangeably, so they *are* (practically) related to those of us who use this program.


Just checked to make sure that LDraw AIOI installs Anton's parts by default in the LGEO directory.


Also, why are the LGEO parts installed in "Program Files"? Wouldn't it be better to put them in the public documents folder with the other parts?

I don't know the reason for sure, but I can guess. The LDraw directory is put in the public documents folder because programs (LDView for sure, maybe others, maybe not) write to it. (LDView for its automatic unofficial parts support. That feature of LDView was written before programs writing to Program Files became verboten from Microsoft.) The LGEO parts aren't updated by any LDraw-compatible programs, so it was probably decided that putting them in an essentially read-only location was OK.
