I followed the instructions on a test machine in my office.

1. Mapi does not work.  mailto is set to tblauncher.  Every time I use a mail 
to option, it opens Outlook.
2. I had to dig down into a sub folder of \AppData\ to find the exe to make the 
program work.

There is some  wrong in the install program app.  Installing a beta has never 
been this difficult or challenge.

Trying to fix the registry also does not work.

Over all, I got this version installed.  The proposed fixes to Mailto and mapi 
do not work at all.

I look forward to a more stable beta.

Thank you.
