    Image shows another bug found by using the foei webform with 3D Preview iframe window. The link list shows a javascript command that needs to be changed to allow the user to open a new window filled with information about the selected Object Item drawn by the 3D Preview iframe window.

    Advanced Windows may like to customise the Right Click popup menu dialog though the registry.

    Open Explorer.exe (My computer) and view C:\Windows\WEB
    Open Regedit.exe (Registry Editor) and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\

    Pre-existing Menu-Popup items on older win32 Pc’s are Highlight, WebSearch, View Source, etc….

    The Inno setup installer is now codesigned, including one of its cargo files titled KitCADi3ie5.exe (see bug report and result for more details).

    The Certificate Key is OPEN and not digitaly signed its self – which means VERY weak protection against Key reuse. The Key will be altered at a later date when required, or by major updates; And again after purchace of online Certificate Authority services – that will require the Key to be re-Authorised at anytime, for any condition, and without notice.
    Full Instructions on the Codesigning Certificate is located at bottom of the Publisher ID page via
