    Hello - I am having a problem installing media player
    because of a Oleaut problem. I went to an area that is
    gives me info on how to fix it. Here is what I got:

    Open a new file in Notepad and add the following
    lines: REGEDIT4




    NOTE: Make sure that that the complete key name, starting
    with [HKEY_... and ending with InprocServer32], is on one
    Save the new file as Oleaut.reg.
    ****In Windows NT Explorer, double-click the Oleaut.reg
    file. Doing this makes the necessary corrections to the
    registry. Microsoft Transaction Server will now function

    The area with four **** before it, does not make since to
    me. I saved the file just as it says. However, where in
    the heck do I double click on "Oleaut.reg"???? I can go
    to file and open it, but it just opens in note pad. Any
    suggestions??? Please email me at

    If it opens in notepad, that is because the file extension for the file is
    ".txt" instead of ".reg". You would want/need to change the file extension
    to ".reg".
