      Hi Tilman

      I had 1.2jb installed already, but re-installed it anyhow.
      I then CLEARED out the log file, ran a new mission, and it still didn't open the browser (FF1.2)
      I'm sending you 4 gifs of the process, so you can see the dialog boxes. NOTICE the name  of the dialog box?


      I'll try  this  (   [Options] UseDDE=0 in XENU.INI I)
      now. If it doesnt work, I'll send  a 2nd email  right away

      Thank you!

          Hi Al,

          This is really weird.

          When firefox isn't active -
          1) When in the windows explorer you double click on a .HTM file, does it
          launch in firefox?
          2) When in a dos box you enter a .HTM file with full path at the command
          prompt, does firefox launch with the file?
          3) Your tmp directory seems to be C:\TMP. Do you run Windows 98 ?

          I see that UseDDE=0 did the trick. However, this does also just launch
          the file directly, without using the Windows DDE library, which is what
          already happens when a DDE error occurs ("DdeGetLastError() = 400a" in
          the logfile).

          Very strange...

            Having looked at the logfile again, I have a doubt whether you did
            actually use the new version, or whether I actually uploaded the new
            version. I have deleted it for now and will check this tonight and then
            reupload it.

            Btw I do have my own domains (xenu.de and scientollywood.org) but I keep
            the "long" download URL. This is for historic reasons :)

            When firefox isn t active - 1) When in the windows explorer you double click on a .HTM file, does it launch in firefox? Yes, both shorties, and html/htm

                   <>1) When in the windows explorer you double click on a .HTM file, does it launch in firefox?

              Yes, both shorties, and html/htm files



                   <>2) When in a dos box you enter a .HTM file with full path at the command
                   <>prompt, does firefox launch with the file?

              Yes it did


                   <>3) Your tmp directory seems to be C:\TMP. Do you run Windows 98 ?

              XP, but I  long ago changed the Environment Variables for tmp & temp manually to.
              TEMP= C:TEMP
              TMP=    C:TMP




                   <>I see that UseDDE=0 did the trick. However, this does also just launch
                   <>the file directly, without using the Windows DDE library, which is what
                   <>already happens when a DDE error occurs ("DdeGetLastError() = 400a" in
                   <>the logfile).

              I dont understand what you meant, but it for sure works now!

              Having looked at the logfile again, I have a doubt whether you did actually use the new version, or whether I actually uploaded the new version. I have

                I'm not sure Tilman, but I did look at he Help/About and it did say 1.2jb

                I'm also "pretty sure" because when you  offered the Beta on the list awhile ago, I went for it.

                Thanks again for all your help.

                  I have reuploaded the "new" version.
                  http://home.snafu.de/tilman/tmp/xenubeta.zip

                  The contents of the logfile shows that you were using the older beta
                  version. (You can also look at the date of your xenu.exe file - of
                  course, before installing the new one).

                  It would be interesting to know what's in your registry at

                  HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\file

                  You can export it into a text file with right-mouse-click.

                  Anyway, the new version should no longer rely on it, even when DDE is
                  not deactivated in XENU.INI.
