I've used OblyTile before just fine. This started happening after I did a system refresh.

Hi

Seems like something went wrong with your system refresh, i refreshed my system more than 2 times, OblyTile keep works without problems.
The problem in this case is the Windows Scripting Host.

Try this:
1) Create a tile with OblyTile.
2) Open the folder C:\Program Files\OblyTile\00000000
3) Right Click on Launcher
4) Open With -> Choose Default Program
5) Select "Microsoft Windows Based Script Host"

This contained the problematic SystemRoot key in the default value. Changing this value to "wscript "%1" %*" solved the situation. Now double clicking works, the tiles respond again and even the default program shows up as the expected "Microsoft Windows Based Script Host".

Hope this helps.
