Yes, a bit OT, but could be useful to understand more about it...

Still no joy. On a WinXP system (the other I refer to is Win98) I used
the regedit tool to look at some REG_EXPAND_SZ entries already in the
Registry, and exported a key for examination. What I discover if I do
this seems *BIZARRE* (but we are talking about Microsoft here so nothing
ought to surprise us). I see the string of hex bytes exported as we have
been discussing, but each one _is followed by a null byte_. Thus one
entry I examined looks like this:
Do you see what I mean? "25,00,53,00,79,00: ... . If *that's* the format
RegEdit expects (and it could have changed between 98 and XP, anyone know?)
then it would certainly explain why I haven't been able to get any
subsequent tries to work.
Even the terminating null is followed by a null.
Now I am scratching my head so hard my hairline is imperiled...
