Hi Guido,

that seems to work fine for me. Please try going to "Tools" -> 
"Options..." -> "Debugger" -> "General", unchecking "Use Creator for 
post-mortem debugging" and clicking "Apply". Then check it again and 
click "Apply" again.

This should cleanly write the used path to the registry. I hope this helps.
