Hello Everyone,
This bug is a year+ old and I have not done much work on it untill now 
as I never could debug the stupid thing. This has always bothered me 
because this program should work fine under Win2K if we are compatible 
with the registry APIs and such. Does anyone have a idea as to what is 
going on?

Here is the info from bug 1395 in bugzilla

When running uninstaller built from Mingw or MS-VC++ 6 under Win2K the 
application seems to work and run fine when there is no information in 
the uninstall branch of the registry. As soon as a program is registered 
and uninstaller is run the program crashes. This has been tested on 3 
systems and with many differnt sources and versions of Mingw. When 
debugging under MSVC with uninstall information in the registry the 
debugger stops at this code.

Line 225/226:
        entries[numentries-1].key =
            HeapAlloc(GetProcessHeap(), 0, strlen(subKeyName)+1);

Entries : Cxx0030: Expression could not be evaluated

I will attach a Visual Stdio build with sources/debugging information 
this evening.
