Took me a while to get back to you, sorry. The dll's registered
successfully but there's no change in the behaviour, and the registry keys
you mention don't exist. Any other suggestions? I don't mind reinstalling
windows if it is going to help.

Thanks!

A repair install should do the trick.

Thanks but the repair install didn't work. Now the activation screen
appears and hangs when you say "yes", currently waiting at 20 minutes...

Would a format work?
