Subject: Re: Vista 64 context menu

Date: Thu, 11 Jun 2009 10:25:35 +0200

Windows Installer has a bug that Microsoft refuses to acknowledge, that causes this behavior for a few users. It does not seem to have anything to do with my program. I don't even use Windows Installer in any way. Other programs have the same problem.
