That's true.

At one point I removed all dictionaries from the reader via "Manage Dictionaries", and re-added them, so all my dictionaries are "brand new", encrypted.
I removed and added again only some of them. That's why I have now a mixture of old and new dictionaries.

Some time ago I tried whether the desktop application accepts a further dictionary by adding a new folder. As was to expect, it did not. I wonder how the application knows which dictionaries to use. I was unable to identify a related entry in the registry. By the way, the application does not use the J-J dictionary. I even installed the desktop application from the Japanese site, but it is exactly the same.

Maybe also unrelated. When I went from 2.1.1 to 2.1.4 the J-J dictionary was definitly there. When I pointed at a Japanese word the Japanese dictionary entry popped up, but it did not appear as a choice at the dictionary selection for a word to define. As far as I remember, I modified the relevant information in the database, but the situation did not change. Only after checking it at the "manage dictionaries" screen and several synchronizations, was the J-J given as a choice.
