Key In commands misbehave

Hello Microstation users,

I am trying to write a MDL program that would export the current model
to a parasolid (x_t) file. I am trying to accomplish this using the
following function call

mdlInput_sendSynchronizedKeyin ("mdl keyin xmt xmtout

When I load my MDL program into Microstation and do the appropriate
actions that call the function containing this line, I do see a
'Export to Parasolid-XMT file' message on the Microstation status bar,
but no file is written. I tried giving the full path to the file like
C:\tmp\test_parasolid.x_t and still no file is written. On the other
hand when I do a

mdlInput_sendSynchronizedKeyin ("mdl keyin xmt

I see that the Export Parasolid dialog box pops up and prompts me for
a location to save the file. Also, when I key-in xmtout C:\tmp
\test_parasolid.x_t in the Key-in dialog of Microstation, the file
gets written and location dialog does not show up (as expected)

I am not really sure what I am missing in the above command. Any help
will be greatly appreciated.

1. Right arrow key MISBEHAVING in EXCEL

2. MountedDevices key: Misbehaving drive letters

I've got a multiboot system with Win 2000 SP4 on each.

REcently, I decided to add Linux, so I repartitioned two USB drives as

USB-1: Logical drive O (NTFS), followed by a Linux ext3
USB-2: Logical drive P (NTFS), followed by a Linux Swap partition.

On all but 1 of the OS, the drive letters are as desired, but on one:

1. Looking at My Computer, S is also assigned to the P drive.
2. Looking at Disk Management, only the S is shown.

Is it safe to take the HKLM\System\MountedDevices key from one of the
properly behaving OS, and import into the misbehaving OS?

Or do those keys get automatically reconfigured each time I reboot?

If not, how do I fix this?

The difference between the misbehaving OS and the others is the misbehaving
OS was installed OVER Win 98, whilst the others were clean installs.
