           <>Hi Al,

           <>I wasn't able to reproduce what happened to you, but based on the
           <>logfile, I have a theory why it didn't work on your system.

           <>There's a new version on http://home.snafu.de/tilman/tmp/xenubeta.zip
           <>(btw, that version produces a new .XEN file format that won't be read by
           <>older versions of Xenu) and reports should launch now even if the
           <>browser isn't launched before.

           <>Funny thing is that someone reported a somewhat similar error a year
           <>ago. I made the change with the logfile in order to find out what was
           <>going on. The guy then "didn't have the time" and never mailed me again.
           <>So I hope that the logfile has now brought its fruits :)

           <>If it still doesn't work:
           <>1) Send me again the file %temp%\xenulog.txt (you can delete it before
           <>you start)
           <>2) Try setting [Options] UseDDE=0 in XENU.INI

           <>If it does work:
           <>Mention it to me, so that I know I have the correct solution.

        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 :)

                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.
