Great work on the regression search! This is exactly the sort of
information we need.
ITSS was implemented by Mike - as it's a component of IE I guess it
should at least work with it so I'm CCing him. It may be that he
implemented it for some other app rather than IE and he doesn't have
time to bring it up to scratch for IE right now. I'm not sure.
The second patch suggests that we got RegInstall wrong. That needs to be
fixed, but for now you can probably get IE back to a working state again
by overriding both these DLLs as native (itss, advpack).
If you look at the script I wrote back in January, quite a lot of what
it does is simply overriding various incomplete DLLs. I no longer
maintain that script (buy CrossOver! :) but if you want to take over
maintenance by all means do so, I'd be happy to help you get up to speed.
