OK, I've got everything as it should be, but...
I see in the companion registry entry, for the 'serenum' key, that the
ImagePath type is indeed REG_EXPAND_SZ, where as in the 'serial' key,
the ImagePath is just REG_SZ.
I've tried all sorts in there, resulting in either no working com ports
at all, or just the standard MS driver being loaded. I cannot find a
way to change the value type from REG_SZ to REG_EXPAND_SZ.
I checked the file sizes, and they all correspond you your 32 bit file
sizes just fine.
I remember Dave Hart saying something about this a long time back to
someone else, and the need to enter a long string of hex digits for the
ImagePath registry entry. But I can't find that information any more.
For now, it's still defaulting to usermode timestamps. Any other
More information about the questions
