UC < version complains that "UltraEdit is not installed" with installed 64-bit UE


    Sep 22, 2015#1

    I'm running:
    UltraEdit x64 version
    UltraCompare Professional version
    Windows 7 Professional SP1 x64

    Both UltraEdit and UltraCompare are working as normal.

    I previously also had the last UltraEdit 22.20 x64 Beta installed, which I uninstalled when 22.20 x64 was released.

    Today I opened UltraCompare and went ahead and compared two .ini text files. No problem. But then when I click the "Edit in UltraEdit" toolbar button UltraCompare throws up a message saying that "UltraEdit is not installed" and invites me to download a free trial!

    Where does UltraCompare look to determine if UltraEdit is installed?

    I presume that UltraCompare is still looking for UltraEdit in the old 32-bit folder, "C:\Program Files (x86)\IDM Computer Solutions" instead of "C:\Program Files\IDM Computer Solutions". How do I convince it to look in "C:\Program Files\IDM Computer Solutions"?

      Please update UltraCompare to v15.10.0.20 which has as only enhancement according to UltraCompare hotfix information the auto-detection of 64-bit version of UltraEdit in comparison to v15.10.0.18.

      BTW: UltraCompare searches under registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths for key uedit32.exe and since also for key uedit64.exe.
