Windows 7: MAILTO protocol missing from my computer -- using Eudora

Windows 7 Home, 64 bit
MAILTO protocol missing from my computer -- using Eudora

In my previous version of Windows (Vista, I think, but I'm not sure) I figured out how to point the MAILTO protocol to Eudora (the mail client that I love and won't give up). When I upgraded to Windows 7, Eudora continued to work property -- but recently that installation became corrupt.

So I manually created a new installation of Eudora (by copying files into a new directory and modifying the INI file to point to the new directory). However, in Windows 7, there doesn't seem to be a MAILTO protocol that I can point to the new installation of Eudora. There must have been a MAILTO protocol in Vista, but there isn't one in Windows 7. How do I create that protocol?

There was a solution given in post #4 in the thread below, but it involved another mail client. Can I use that solution and then redirect the protocol to Eudora? To complicate matters, the new Eudora installation does not appear in the list of installed programs.
