It installed not so well for me (some month ago). The file where ok but many 
missing registry entries.

As Alexandre pointed out the problem are the quotes around the filename when 
LoadLibrary is called. I plan to create a 'good' patch for Control_DoLaunch in 
shell32. I did a hack and got further with the program (not much, 
because it does not draw the window properly and the window does not 
interact with the user).

Should the bug report be for  shell32.RunDll or for LoadLibraryA?
