Yes, Google Earth was enabled. I unchecked it and the
problem seems to be resolved. Which, of course, doesn't actually
represent a solution if I want to have Google Earth enabled.
But, still, at least the pop-up is gone.
+ If and when you decide to install Google Earth, it will
register itself with Windows as the default application for .kml
files. Then when DXView directs Windows to "open" a .kml file,
Windows will automatically invoke Google Earth to display it.
+ Why this level of indirection through Windows? So that DXView
doesn't have to know where you installed Google Earth.
