I had done so yesterday before testing, but on a lark I just ran it 
again and now I can add my app.

Weird UI problem there, though:  it doesn't show up under "Applications" 
in the list there, even though that's the folder it's in.  I opened the 
tab for "Other", then did the "Locate...", and then it didn't show up 
under "Others" but was listed among the "Applications", unchecked, 
however.  So I just checked it and it was all good from there.

Thanks for the assist.
