Hi, thanks for the notice.
Actually I'm aware that there is this postinstall return problem also in 
Windows XP and I've fixed it but the code base isn't quite ready yet for 
the next release - can it still wait for a short while?
On the other hand, if the key doesn't exist because the mechanism has 
changed in Windows 7, I'm not sure what to do because I don't have W7 
myself for testing - any advice by someone? Just some other key name
