UPDATED SOLUTION
Goofware decided to take the windows XP image viewer, wrap it in an installer, and release it as a patch, but did a sloppy with his reg work so it did not work on my system where D is the main disk. What could I do? I went over it and re-wrote it from scratch! Notes in source (as always) and a compiled below for download.


Code:
removed, old. Current source here

nice of you to insult him by calling him a goof, criticize his efforts and rework it without asking if he minded.

His site was goofwear.com, therefore he called himself goof before I did. I wasn't trying to insult him.

I wasn't too harsh, and said nothing false. I know why he did it the way he did - he used the simplest approach. But sometimes the simplest approach isn't the best one.

If no one ever tried to fix or improve other's work, innovation wouldn't happen. If he (or anyone) takes time to look, they could learn two things from my code:
1: Using REG_EXPAND_SZ lets you put environment variables in the values
2: For setting program compatibility programmatically the key HKEY_LOCAL_MECHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers will be most useful

Update!
Found a minor spelling error, preventing it from setting compatibility (Derp) - Fixed
Added an uninstall option
Added a message when it completes installing

Moved Source to Google Docs

The only reason I did it in the first place is because I had some gifs to view and his installer wouldn't work on my computer. I run my computer from my D drive :P but his installer relies on it being on C:
