    Could not install. Dialog box opens saying some files are in use or I do not have privileges to make changes.

    Chuck try importing the file from reply #15.

    For most of these keys you do need to be an admin on the computer.

    Please export your Folder key so I can see what yours is set to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder

    The registry file you requested. I had to save as text so I could upload it. Forum would not let me upload as .reg

    I ran the Process Monitor and could not find that string. I did a search for it and received a message that it was unable to be found (see attached). I went to the Regedit and found it (see attachment).
