Thanks for your response:- Your assumption about this problem is correct.
The error I get is a Message Box saying "The properties for this item are
not available", when my NSE is under My Computer. Further investigation has
shown that the same reg entries work fine on Windows 2000. I should have
made it clear in my initial posting that my problem manifests itself on
Win98; I didnt think there would be a difference (!).
Any information or thoughts that would help get round this problem would be
very much appreciated:- thanks
