That sounds great. The biggest problems I have with Revolution is icon 
recognition on mac classic and icon and file recognition on windows. 
When and if I get this mac classic problem solved I will move on to a 
work around for setting four entries into the Registry on Windows in 
hopes of getting my apps to operate normally there without the user 
having to manually force recognition.  What ticks me off is Revolution 
adds the four needed items to the registry when first running or 
installing. Not a single person at Rev can show me what they do to set 
the registry in windows for installing Revolution; a solution that 
works fine for them.

Any help would be appreciated,

Mark
