I am trying to restore my backup of the registry layout settings from the install and am receiving an error.

If you are trying to restore the backup of your layout windows in the registry and are receiving an error message, the following work around can be used:
• Under the ...\Puma\Previous Regsitry Entries folder, locate the (*.reg) file (either Puma or GraphTool) that you wish to restore.
• Right click and select 'Edit' from the menu. Select the entire area of text and copy it to the clipboard.
• Open up a new text document (*.txt) and paste the clipboard into the new text document. Save this file.
• Rename this text document from (*.txt) to (*.reg). It should now be associated as Registry Entries.
• Double click on this file to import the settings.
