I found the new client in two places:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"SystemAgent"="C:\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM\\SAGE.EXE"
"SystemTray"="SysTray.Exe"
"LexStart"="LexStart.EXE"
"internat.exe"="internat.exe"
"MGA Control Center"="Mgactrl.exe"
"Colorific Control Panel"="D:\\w95\\Matrox MGA PowerDesk\\Color\\hgcctl95.exe"
"bovwin32"="D:\\TOOLS\\RC5\\GUIWIN32.EXE -run"

and:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices]
"bovwin32"="D:\\TOOLS\\RC5\\GUIWIN32.EXE -run"

The old hidden client must have been at one of these places, too.  

To install the new one without invoking the install procedure you
would create a .reg file like this:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"bovwin32"="D:\\TOOLS\\RC5\\GUIWIN32.EXE -run"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices]
"bovwin32"="D:\\TOOLS\\RC5\\GUIWIN32.EXE -run"

This adds the new GUI client, but doesn't remove the old one.
