I was able to recreate one of your problems.

The shdocvw.dll file not found is because you don't have IE4
installed. Because the browser button in the new Emerald 2.5 can
only talk to Microsoft's IE4 (now why didn't Microsoft be a nice-guy
and also support Netscape??), you need to have Internet Explorer
installed to take advantage of that feature. If you don't (and it
sounds like you don't) then that feature won't be available.

Thanks for the word about the readme.tx_ file. The original had it,
looks like it was updated Thanksgiving day and someone forgot to
compress it before adding it back into the archive. I can't find the
shlwapi.dll problem, but suspect that it is also related to IE4.

Not trying to force your choice of browsers, but again, Microsoft
didn't write an open browser interface into their Visual Basic
libraries for some reason. ;_)
