Error running PlaceBarEditor 1.1.0.61

Postby Giulio » Fri Aug 01, 2008 9:17 am

Hi,
I've got an error running ver. 1.1.0.61
This is my first attemp to install the software. My OS is windows 2000 sp4 and I do not have Office at all. Could be this the reason?? Why?

Thanx in advance

Giulio

p.s. If is not possible for me to run your software, is it possible to have the info to edit places bar manually?

I am running Windows 2000 SP4 and it works no problem. what exactly is the error you are getting?

and yes you can edit the registry manually if you like.

Hi,
when I doubleclick on the application's icon a small dialog window appear and it says:
"Application Error". PlacesBar.exe raised an error and it is going to be closed. It will be necessary to start the program again.
(sorry for the translation!)

This is what I can see in the event registry:

Do I need other software to run the application?? Office suite?? .Net framework?? Some non standard DLL??

thanx

Giulio

p.s. At the addres http://www.poremsky.com/p/windows2000_placesbar.htm they say to create a new key "Placesbar" in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Comdlg32
but in my registry also the Comdlg32 is missing. I can browse the registry until
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies and in this location I can see only
those two subkeys: "Explorer" and "System". Should I create both "Comdlg32" and "Placesbar"??

From looking at your events it looks like PlacesBar installed OK but there is some problem with your Windows Installer. WSI is a standard Windows Service so I don't know what in there would cause a problem unless you have a bad Windows Installation?

Also not having /ComDlg in the registry is also quite odd. I am almost positive it is always there whenever I have manually edited the registry. Is your Windows 2000 setup unique somehow?

Hi,
I've manually edited the registry and everything is ok now. I'm sorry for your software.
Thanx anyway for your support.

Giulio

p.s. No, my windows 2000 is perfectly standard. SP4 and RollUp 1. If you need more information to investigate more and fix your software (active services, active processes, etc.), feel free to ask me.
