Running XP home+SP2+SP3. I use PhotoEd a lot but it now starts-up with "No file information can be found in the registry". I cannot open or save files, only via the clipboard to another application. Presumably the registry is corrupt, but searching it gives me no clues. System Restore isn't any help. There's no way I will re-install XP at this stage. Can anyone with XP + photoed send me a .reg printout of the relevant keys?

  1. Just uninstall and reinstall the program, it will re-add the registry settings.
  2. Thanks for that, but photoed.exe is not 'installed' as such - it comes as part of the XP package. So it isn't listed in "Add/remove Programs" and it doesn't have it's own installer (which would be something like photoed.inf) file. I really don't want to re-install the whole of XP just for this one, so I am hoping someone out there can help me identify the missing registry keys. I Googled for 'photoed.exe' but just get redirected to general-purpose registry-fixit utilities (at a price). These would surely not be able to re-generate the missing keys, just clean out rubbish.

  3. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
