Clearing list of old projects in ABBYY FlexiCapture startup dialog

When starting ABBYY FlexiCapture, a user is presented with a list of last opened projects.  Frequently, once folders have been moved or projects deleted, paths in that list will no longer be valid.  It may be desireable to clear that list.

The only known method how to clear that list is through Registry.

Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareABBYYFlexiCapture9.0ShellMRU_List and remove unwanted items from the “List” node.
