Hello, all. I am writing with multiple questions. (And if I should be 
sending these directly to the LibX team rather than this list, someone 
please respond to me directly and let me know.)

Question 1 - Web Localization via Embedded Cues on Amazon: Following up 
on Godmar's response of 11/22/11 to my question about this: Just so I 
make sure I understand correctly what I should tell our collection 
development coordinator, do you anticipate that this functionality 
(embedded cue for searching our library catalog in Amazon for formats 
other than books) will be added to LibX 2.0? And what can I tell him 
about the anticipated timeline?

Question 2 - Open URL Button in Catalog 2.0 - When our users download 
the LibX 2.0 beta version, it makes our Find It! button (SFX open URL 
button) appear in our catalog (VUFIND) search results, which we don't 
want to happen. This does not happen in 1.5 . Does this happen for 
others? Is there some way to change that so it doesn't appear in the 
catalog? Is this a default in 2.0 beta, or did I inadvertently configure 
our 2.0 settings to make this happen?

Question 3 - With our latest revision of LibX for IE, we receive the 
following error message when we attempt to perform a search through LibX 
(for instance, a search of our book catalog): "Error in searching: 
Object reference not set to an instance of an object." That error 
message displays and no search is performed. Are others having this 
problem? I started by asking our IT specialist, and this was his 
response: "I tested it on a few machines and I receive the same error. I 
am guessing it is a bug due to it installing in the x64 version of IE 
instead of the x32 version. It should be installing on the x32 version. 
I think they need to fix their installer to work with Windows 7 x64. It 
could also be that they don't support IE 9." Can someone please advise 
as to what I can do on my end to correct this problem? Or is this 
something that needs to be addressed by the LibX team?

Thanks in advance for advice on these issues!
