I have linked this to an existing bug report and I will look at this as soon as possible.

Hi Nick,

I have some informaiotn that may help you. If I look in regedit, under the key HKEY_CLASS_ROOT->CLSID rather than a sub hive there is a simple folder. I know that the CSCLId is messed up on this and regedit is not dispalying correctly. It is not totally messed up though becuase much of my programs still work.

Can I send you the registry file to expedite this for you?

If you'd like you can go the bug report and attach the registry file there. Or, you can email it to me at nick (at) little-apps [dot] org

Once I get a chance, I will send the updated EXE so you shouldn't encounter this error.

Can you help with this problem?
