  1. I was experiencing this issue – the dll registry fix did nothing, but I found something that worked. If you disable the Project Guide (Tools/Options/Interface Tab – uncheck Project Guide box), and then close project, this issue seems to be magically fixed. After making this change, I could once again click on icons for existing project files and have them open fine.

  2. Thanks for the posting.

    Attempted (re)registering the first .dll failed – dll not found, but Todd’s fix worked perfectly.

    Thanks, Simon
