Ok...NEW EUREKA MOMENT!!!
Remember how Rejoice refused to work on my Win 7 laptop because I have a 64-bit version of Win 7? (If not, scroll up.)
Thanks to my sketchy understanding of European languages and the YouTube video below, I NOW have Rejoice working on my laptop. It seems all I had to do was copy and paste a few .dll registries from one Windows folder to another, and PRESTO!
I said it before, I'll say it again... I'm in this how-to for the long haul. This WILL WORK!
