AX Reports Management - The "Text Image" button does not bring up another window with the text view.

issue
In ApplicationXtender Reports Management (ERMX) 6.5 when looking at the Report Types and trying to set up (or view) a procedure, the "Text Image" button does not bring up another window with the text view. Nothing happens when the button is pushed. 

Cause
This problem was caused by a product defect identified under JIRA-ERMX-60.
 
The TextView dialog is displayed outside the screen. The last top-left coordinate is saved in the registry when we close MMC but for some unexplained reason there must have been an error in calculating that top-left coordinate resulting in large number. 

The only way to fix this is to go into registry and correct the top-left coordinate.Make sure Report Management Admin is closed before making the change. Instructions
