You're welcome.

Received wisdom is that archives should not be decompressed in a Windows
environment, because RO filetypes will be screwed-up.

I'm surprised that it works!

It seems that parts of your !Boot are missing. I would suggest that you
re-instate your 5.17 !Boot, then update it, using the file from the link
above, _and_ using the Boot-Install dialogue.

I've now updated my installation here to RO 5.19 (22-Apr-2013) and !Boot
dated 6 Feb 2013 (as link above) without problem.
