It will not be until tomorrow, the student have classes all day.

Is there an easy way of getting these values from, say, the command line? regedit is a bit scary and usually not something I recommend users even open up.

Hi Lars,

The undefined value is
  my $uninst_key = $Registry -> Open((admin() ? "LMachine" : "CUser") .
    {Access => KEY_ALL_ACCESS()});

Can you open the registry, and check both the LMachine and CUser
followed by ....(see above) and whether these keys are available?

Windows Registry ... always a problem.
