Yes, I checked again. I used my XP SP2 machine in VMWare which I always
use whenever I want to test a plain install. No environment variables,
no path entries. Even starting a new CMD.EXE does not work (as I tested

Interestingly, I just checked the registry and found out that the
entries are there. Ok, I logged off, logged in, and the entries are
there. Thus, one has to log off. Perhaps, sending a WM_SETTINGSCHANGE
might help here?

Another thing: The announcement is in Unix format (LF only), but it is
shown with notepad. This is not good, as notepad cannot interpret LF

Anyway, if you could change it to use WordPad ("write.exe"), this would
be better as WordPad can handle LF only correctly.

Ok, I see. As I told above, it works "almost".
