Windows 7: Eudora startup message that it can't update registry

Eudora startup message that it can't update registry

Windows 7 Professional. I have been using Eudora for more than 10 years. Downloaded a new Eudora installation ( after my computer got reimaged. I was able to copy and access all of the 10 years worth of data and email messages I had accumulated over those 10 years. I specified Eudora as the default mail program and everything works fine except now whenever I start Eudora I get the message "Eudora was unable to update the system registry. Your default mail program has not been changed." Any thoughts on how to actually make Eudora the default mail program and no longer get that message?
