Subject IBOConsole: Invalid KeyLinks entry
Author Sibylle Koczian
Hello, all,

I've asked this on December 20 but didn't get any response. Is there a
better place to go with IBOConsole problems? On the download page I can't
find anything, googling with 'IBOConsole' didn't give me anything usable

Thanks for any sort of hint,
