Program should create HKCU registry entries

Program should create HKCU registry entries

CVS-Ext 1.6.1 already creates HKEY_CURRENT_USER Windows registry entries on installation for the user who installed the shell extension. For Administrator on my machine these were in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\WoLoSoft\CVSExt\Tools and specified the the CVS, diff and edit executables which be changed in the CVSExt options dialog.

However, when I switch to my regular machine account, that HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry tree does not exist, so the options dialog fails to register the user options, and there are no default options available. No custom diff or edit command can be run.

HOW TO FIX: each time CVSExt shell extension starts up, the presence of those HKEY_CURRENT_USER entries should be checked, and if they don't exist, the default values should be created.

WORKAROUND: Use regedit.exe to export a .reg file of HKEY_CURRENT_USER\WoLoSoft\CVSExt\Tools entries while logged on as the original installing user and then import it while logged on as the current user.

This looks like a very useful shell extension, congratulations.

Re: Program should create HKCU registry entries

Thank you for the report. I always used to install it on my own user account. I'm going to test the next version with an alternative user account too.
