I personally think that it a nice gesture by Jessie and thank him for his efforts even though I don't use Vista.

IMHO it probably isn't the best way to release a patch but it is the thought that counts.

Jesse, can you please tell us what exactly that registry change does?

What did the original entry do, what does the new one do?

Does this affect or even deactivate any of the security settings of Vista?


Certainly.  It changes the loading location of a particular ActiveX control (the HTML help control) from %SystemRoot%\System32\... to C:\WINDOWS\System32\... .  It's 100% functionally equivalent and what I change it to is what XP and previous had.  The issue is the Delphi function which tries to load it can't parse the environment variable %SystemRoot% (or any other) properly, so expanding it to its fully-qualified pathname solves the problem.

No, it does not mess with any Vista security settings/features.

Yes, some of us still use 2.4.

Although we're not stupid enough to use Vista.

Exactly what registry entry do I make for being able to use the new DVD Profiler Mobile?  Oh, that's right, after years you couldn't even get THAT to work either!  So even though I have spent MORE of my money, I can't really use it correctly.

You didn't spend your surplus money here, you're posting in a thread that has nothing to do with the mobile version, and your whining would be better kept in one of the numerous crying threads available.

Does the thought that there might be some people happy about this  fix around here, that really can do very well without this kind of uncalled for accusations in this thread, even enter the outskirts of your mind?

Jeez, some of you guys really are a piece of work... <shakes head>

No, he spent his surplus money somewhere else, but Intervocative have decided that they will stop him using the product he paid for because they are incapable of delivering updates or a new version that fixes issues like this. He has every right to moan loudly and as often as he likes, whereever he likes, including this thread.

Who cares. Intervocative obviously don't care about their customers, so why should these customers care about Intervocative? Throwing this pathetic little titbit to users after crippling a much better solution, and somehow thinking that users would be grateful is ridiculous. Intervocative have damaged their customer relationships beyond repair. This little patch to fix a long on-going issue will win them none of that back.

Get your head out of the sand. Intervocative have screwed their customers. Exactly why should we feel good about that?

johnd has said, much more politically correct, my exact intentions.  And I thank him for seeing the TRUE meaning in my post.

after allmost 30 min of looking in the regedit im not 100% sure if I got the right one to edit (to much room for error)
Is there a easyer way to do this?
Like a registry add or a .exe to patch it?

Here is a fix for the annoying access violation when exiting DVD Profiler (2.4 or 2.5 beta) on Windows Vista.  It involves a change to the Windows Registry, so take all normal precautions, backups, etc. before making the change.  The change listed is in the form of a registry merge file - copy and paste into a file called dvdpvistafix.reg and use the import function in RegEdit.  Or edit the Registry directly navigating to the key shown and the values below.

Original registry entry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{ADB880A6-D8FF-11CF-9377-00AA003B7A11}\InprocServer32]
@=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,00,25,\
  00,5c,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,68,00,68,00,\
  63,00,74,00,72,00,6c,00,2e,00,6f,00,63,00,78,00,00,00

New registry entry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{ADB880A6-D8FF-11CF-9377-00AA003B7A11}\InprocServer32]
@=hex(2):43,00,3a,00,5c,00,57,00,49,00,4e,00,44,00,4f,00,57,00,53,00,5c,00,53,\
  00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,68,00,68,00,63,00,74,00,\
  72,00,6c,00,2e,00,6f,00,63,00,78,00,00,00

Note that this is hexadecimal code for the following strings: "%SystemRoot%\System32\hhctrl.ocx" in the original and "C:\WINDOWS\System32\hhctrl.ocx" in the new.  Make sure the new matches where you installed Vista on your system.

Myself and IVS do not take responsibility for any data loss due to this modification.

I FEEL LIKE IM TAKING CRAZY PILLS!!!

That second block is a registry add.  Copy and paste into a file and save then import it into the registry.

Copy & paste the text from the quote above into notepad, save it as "fix.key". Double click that file and the old entry will be replaced by the new one.

I received the following error when importing the registry fix:

Cannot import fix.reg. Not all data was successfully written to the registry. Some keys are open by the system or other processes.

To solve this, you need to change the owner and permissions of the key.

Browse to this location in the registry:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{ADB880A6-D8FF-11CF-9377-00AA003B7A11}\InprocServer32] in regedit

Select Edit --> Permissions
Click on the Advanced button --> select the owner tab
In the change owner to: list, select administrators and click ok

You now return to the previous screen

Select administrators in the Group or User Names: list
In the permissions list, select full control
Click and Apply and Ok

The registry import will now be successful.
