File->Export from a report shows "registry error" in installed app only

P: n/a
I built my application with Access 2003 and made a distribution using
the Microsoft Office Access 2003 Developer Extensions.
(I also install Jet 8 as a follow-on action at the end of the
I can install the application on my development PC and on a "bare" PC.
Regardless of the PC where I install, in the installed application (but
not the development version)
File->Export from a Report brings up a dialog box containing "Registry
Error" as the first File Type. Pressing on anyway, and selecting
another type (e.g. .html), then following through with an Export causes
the error dialog: "The formats that enable you to output data as a
Microsoft Excel, right-text format, MS_DOS text, or HTML file are
missing or incorrectly registered in the registry." But it *is*
possible to perform such an export from my development version, on the
very same PC where this message occurs. So it's about what the
*installed* application sees in the registry. Is there some kind of
tweak to the Microsoft Office Access 2003 Developer Extensions ->
Package Wizard
that will allow my installed application to export to .rtf et al?
