Paul- It ain't necessarily so! I had a new, relatively simple installation of UFT 3.0 on a new hard drive until I started playing around with the patches and re-installing UFT 2.0 in a different directory. My update installation, uninstallation and reinstallation worked, but...
My Registry shows.
=================== Paul, I am not particularly comfortable in REGEDIT, but I think I am at the same place you are. Somehow I don't think that Genealogy.com should be requiring users to be in REGEDIT to install an update.
