Hi,

I'm the developer of Merkaartor, thanks for noticing it.

It would have been even nicer to report the bugs you found upstream, though ;-)

Mines will be solved by next minor version.
However, I'm not sure how to handle the "Qt junk"... Would there be a known workaround?

@Koying (Chris)

Welcome to TPFC.

I am not sure how you should go about the Trolltech (QT framework) registry entries. One option is to let Merkaartor check for and delete the keys on exit (termination). I know Tapin Radio (http://www.tapinradio.com/) uses QT but it does not leave any registry keys. You may want to contact them for the workaround. Alternativey, search PortableApps.com (open source) for a program that uses this framework and check the source for an idea (I believe ConvertAll does). Another option is to create a launcher for Merkaartoor but you will have to contact PortableApps.com, winpenpack.com, and the such for details.
