Hi Neil,

I'm being told I have three copies of Windows Messenger installed. I suspect you're recursively searching for this program. I don't even have it installed in my current version of Windows as far as I know (I generally only install it when needed). Because I'm a repair man I think your program is tripping up on client hard drives like O: vs C: my %SystemDrive%.

What .exe are you looking for when you find this? How are you checking?

Thanks,
Christian Blackburn

    Default search directories are:

    "${PROGRAMFILES}","${SYSTEMDRIVE}\perl","${SYSTEMDRIVE}\python25","${WINDIR}\system32","${ALLUSERSPROFILE}\Start Menu","${USERPROFILE}\Start Menu"

    Also it follows shortcuts (.lnk) and searches the registry for install paths. You can configure these with the GUI or manually set them in a .ini file, see the included config-sample.ini

    If you use --info="Windows Messenger" it will show you the full path of where these instances were found, its also a new feature in the GUI for this version if you click the "Info" button.

    I can't do anything more on this one without a response, changing to pending status.
