    The Famous "The Media Center commercial skip program has stopped responding and you will be returned to Media Center"

    Hi All,

    Just finished a fresh install of Vista Ultimate x86 and after uploading every possible updated from windows UUpdate, I installed DVRMSToolbox (V1.2.1.6). Unfortunately I got this annoying error.

     I tried to verify the keys, as well as follow the suggestions mentioned in older threads related to V1.2.0.6, but this didn't do the trick. Interesting fact is, i did another fresh install with Vista x64 on another machine and this one worked fine. When I launched the set-up utility, I got an alert about MCEState.dll not being registered and if I want to fix it. I clicked on yes and it worked perfectly.

    However, for some reason the 32bit version doesn't work. I tried un-installing and re-installing (and rebooting in between) but to no availability.

    I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

     Thanks,

    E.

    Just looked at the Event Log and I see the same exception thrown when ComSkip is trying to initialize:

    Probably the best thing to do at this point would be to install- and reinstall. Detailed instructions here:

    Thanks Burger, this solved the issue indeed.

     Just out of curiocity, any idea what is going wrong with the first installation? It does smell like user privilleges tough (although I I have my UAC turned off)

     

    Best,

    Eyal
