However, I have executed that .reg file (it said "these settings have 
been correctly added to the register", or whatever), and still, pd 
extended doesn't load the libraries.

If loading the libraries is the default setting, then it means that:
1) somehow I have set it otherwise in the past
2) executing the .reg file doesn't restore the default setting properly

(1) seem to me very strange because I have no idea of how to change this 
setting (telling pd not to load libraries) and never felt the necessity 
to do it
and also (2) is quite strange isn't it?

How else can I restore default settings? Or can the issue be another one?

Yeah, well I meant that I have installed it in the system's "special" 
program file directory in C: where all programs are installed, which in 
Vista is actually called "Program Files" even if it is displayed with a 
translated name when browsing it in explorer ("Archivos de Programa" in 
my case since my computer is spanish); previously I had it installed in 
another disk, in a folder that I called "programmi" (since I am italian) 
which has no special meaning for the system.
However that doesn't seem to be the problem, that was just a try.
