I downloaded 188.8.131.5231, mainly because it was the only older one i could find, and it works with cathy.exe unlike 184.108.40.20617.
To reiterate, cathy.exe reads a disc for content and stores it in an ongoing catalog. Discs prepared by cdburnerXP 4.5 are all seen as the same disc, while those prepared by 4.3.8 ( and I suspect a little later) are read correctly.
Other cdburners, to include nero and imgburn, produce discs that cathy.exe reads correctly.
As to cathy.exe, may i suggest you look at http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/best-free-file-disk-catalog-organizer.htm.
And thanks for following up on this.
a possible suggestion, a download path to older versions will be helpful.
