Neverwinter Nights 2 re-assessment

I still hold that NWN2 was a bad release, and had many bugs, not least of which was being unable to install the game! However, I managed to get around that by getting a registry file from a NWN2 forum member, which let me then run the update program, which as it turns it fixes alot of the bugs, including being unable to save ones game!

Below are the entries for my x64 install. For 32 bit windows, you’ll have to alter the Program File paths and remove the \Wow6432Node from the registry paths. You’ll also need to find the GUID that windows is using for NWN2 (you might not have to, but I did it just to be sure). Find the NWN2 GUID from the uninstall entry (search reg for neverwinter or something related), as this somehow WAS succesfully entered into the registry.
