Yesterday one of our PhD students came to me with the weirdest thing: she
previously had two separate gretl installs on different subdirectories
(don't ask me why) on her Windows Vista PC.
After removing them both, she proceeded to install 1.8.4. The install went
fine, except for one thing: double-clicking an existing gdt or inp file
launched gretl alright, but running gretlw32 "dry" produced an instance of
gretl with no menu bar (!!!); I'm no Vista expert, but I managed to go
back to normal by:
1) uninstalling gretl
2) deleting everything gretl-related from the registry via regedit (long
3) re-installing gretl
I have no idea why this worked, but it did. If someone more windows-savvy
than I am (doesn't take much) could see to it...
