help with Game Explorer Manager developer and publisher url
Fist and foremost this is NOT a continuation of my previous 2 posts it is a different problem regarding Game Explorer Manager. (on that note i am sorry for the double post earlier )
Ok so lets get down to business ,
Recently i started to take interest in windows game explorer and want it to look as neat as possible so after searching for many programs that will edit the and add game entries for me and i have came across Game Explorer Manager and vista game builder, i have tried them both but prefer Game Explorer Manager due to its options.
Any way i have stumbled upon an annoying little problem using Game Explorer Manager is that when i create the GDF files and i input the developer and publisher names along with their URLs, however when i go into the games explorer i just see the game developer and publisher name but they are not linked this happens for all games i add using Game Explorer Manager
Look at the bottom, I realist that this is not the end of the wold and that it wont kill me but its irritating (im one of those i like it perfect people )
Ok here is exactly what i put for both entries and the install resource screen
Am i inputting th eURL in the wrong format, is there supposed to be http? or a / at the end?
Please help thanks in advance

Don't mean to revive an old post. You may have already found the answer by now. I was having this same issue, and although non-consequential, it was bugging me. I finally figured it out...
After you've finished the process of creating the GDF files for your respective games, go into the registry. Make sure Game Explorer is closed while making these registry changes. WARNING! Take great care when making changes in the registry. Incorrect changes can cause extensive damage to the operating system:
1) Open regedit.exe and go to the following path --> HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameUX\Games\
2) Each of the subkeys (folders with the random numbers) under "Games" represents all of the games that you see in Game Explorer. Browse through them until you find the subkeys for the games you add with GameExplorerManager.
3) For each of the games that you've added using GameExplorerManager, make sure the "IsSigned" value is set to 1 instead of 0.
4) After making your changes, close the registry. Open Game Explorer and your Publisher and Developer links should now work properly.
The IsSigned value being set to 0 also prevents other features from functioning correctly in Game Explorer, such as the Rating information for the game, for example. You'll have to play around with it to find out what else it affects.
Hope this helped!
