Due to various anti-virus programs incorrectly blocking version 4.04 of the Directory software with a "false positive", an updated version of the Directory software is now available. This new version 4.0.5 seems to be fine with the anti-virus programs.
If you're encountering errors accessing the Directory software, or are getting messages from your anti-virus, download and install the latest version. This will resolve the problems.
I apologize for this inconvenience, but I have no control over the anti-virus companies. Norton and McAfee have responded to me that this is a true "false positive" detection and there is no virus in the Directory software. However, the damage (blocked file) has already been done.
I am currently using PCMatic SuperShield for virus protection. It was not letting me open your Directory unless I paused/disabled the protection. I upgraded my Directory to the new .5 version and I still have the same blocking. If SuperShield is active I get this message on my desktop and the Directory will not open.
If I pause/disable SuperShield, I can then open the Directory. Your fix did not make the Directory compatible with PCMatic's SuperShield. But pausing SuperShield to open the Directory is a simple procedure that I can live with. I just thought you should know and possibly alert others to this situation.

Thanks for the reply. The problem is with the anti-virus definitions, which should be corrected by the various anti-virus programs soon.
They are falsely identifying a "Trojan" in the Directory software. Norton and McAfee have both admitted this is a "false positive" detection and will correct this in their next virus definition file update.
I had a similar problem, but it was not the anti virus. I suspect it was a corrupted database, because I could not uninstall the old program from my computer. I did multiple registry searches on the term "milcamp" and deleted all references manually from my registry. This allowed me to install the program. I now just need updated registration info. I sent a paypal payment to extend my subscription.

The "Missing IE4+" error is an indication that you're not running a recent version of the Directory software that is Windows 10 compatible.
If you're using the download version, be sure to download the latest version
If you're using the CD-ROM version, be sure to perform a "program update" to get the most recent version. You can still update, even if you're getting the IE error (a current subscription is required).
