Bowser/Browser
« on: October 08, 2018, 01:31:20 am »
- I noticed that when I installed WR v4.3.0 there was one file called "Bowser.reg". This file was in the subfolder "C:\program files(x86)\.............\files\regfiles\vista". Shouldn't this name be "Browser.reg" ?? (with an "r" between the "b" and "o"). Like it is in other "regfile" subfolders for Windows XP, Win 7 or Win 8 ??
- Or is this a typo made by MICROSOFT that only happens in Vista ?

Shane says that's how it happens in Vista.

Have you not thought about moving on with your version of Windows ?

- No, I don't use Windows XP or Vista (anymore). I am on a Win 7 Pro system.
