comment What triggers the program compatibility assistant
You are right. Clicking that does stop the message appearing again. But it doesn't really answer my question of why it is happening in the first place.

It looks like a shim may be able to surpress the message. I just want to know what's causing it, and hopefully fix it.

@Gareth. This is certainly NOT a duplicate. I need to detect 32/64 bit VIA THE REGISTRY.

I'd like it to be generic across all windows versions.

I wish I could just use a different browser. But I need it for testing software- I'm a software developer.

Ok. Here's the result when I try running IE9: box.net/shared/xl83eoxd7y It's full of "Name not found" and "Path not found" errors. Why they're happening- I don't know.

(1) Yes, it still fails. (2) Eset NOD32 antivirus. I'd be surprised if that's to blame though, since several of my colleagues use it and IE9 is ok for them.
