It does not; it uses a custom installer that doesn't modify anything
in the registry or the Windows installation database. The only change
to the system (other than copying the files) is that it adds a
shortcut to the Start menu. In all other aspects the installation is
completely portable and can be moved to a different folder or drive.

I don't have a simple answer, because of the possibility for a
trademark conflict and confusion. I'll email you my thoughts on this.
