[gme-users] Question on paradigm not being found despite being registered

Hi Andy,

We have seen this problem as well, on a number of different machines.  It
was introduced with the 0.8.3 version of CoSMIC, which is built on GME
10.2.9.  In our experience, this only happens on computers that had a prior
version of CoSMIC installed, e.g., 0.8.2 with an older paradigm.  For a new
install on a clean machine that didn't have GME or CoSMIC installed
previously, everything seems to work fine.

Despite first uninstalling the older CoSMIC 0.8.2 version, or even CoSMIC
_and_ GME, a reinstall with 0.8.3 apparently leaves something behind that
causes this problem.  We did a quick examination of the registry after a
full uninstall of GME and CoSMIC, and didn't see anything obvious.  I
believe we also made sure the GME and ISIS folders under Program Files were
completely deleted before reinstalling, but old paradigm registrations are
evidently being left behind somewhere that we couldn't find.

We eventually stumbled onto a trial-and-error fix that involves copying of
Program Files directories and manual registration of paradigms from the GME
menu until we stop getting this error.
