Importing registry key stopped working

Post by wmmiller »

Hi Fred,

Using beta 6.8.0.2 On Windows 8.1 Professional x64. When I run my Import KillAllIgnoreList and/or Import the Reporting settings, UVK downloads the file and imports it into the registry but does not move on to the next checked item. If I hit the cancel button, it moves to the next one and does the same as above. (See snip) I’ve been gone for some time and there has been a few new releases of UVK so I’m not sure when it started. Let me know if you need more information.

Bill

Hi Bill. Welcome back!

Would it be asking too much if I asked you to send me that System repair settings file? That would really help me to figure it out.

Thanks.

Bill, I just tested your script and it worked fine for me. My guess is that regedit was already running when you executed the commands.

I think the best way is to use the reg import command to import the reg files.

Change the "Import KillAllIgnoreList" third party app command as follows:
%Comspec% /c reg.exe import "%ThirdParty%\KillAllIgnoreList.reg"

And the "Import the Reporting settings" one as follows:
%Comspec% /c reg.exe import "%ThirdParty%\ReportingSettings.reg"

That should ensure the process exits after importing the registry keys.

Let me know the results.

Fred,

I changed the commands as you suggested but I’m getting the same results as before. I also noticed that the MVPS Host fix in the file I sent you does the same thing. They just hang until I click the cancel button. It runs the fix but it hangs and doesn’t move on.

Edit: Java update hangs as well. I’m going to run some windows fixes and see if the results are the same. I’m getting the feeling that this is going to boil down to this computer as it has in the past. I bet I’m just missing something dumb. :roll: I’ll report back. But hey, Flash is working! :D

Bill,

Even if it is a problem related to your pc, UVK should be able to overcome it. I tested on my windows 7. Will test on windows 8.1 to see if I can spot it out.

Fred,

I did a system restore back to the day before I went into the hospital on 09/12/2014 and everything works fine. I tried it both ways with both fixes and it works. Version 6.7.0.0.

%WinDir%\Regedit.exe /s "%ThirdParty%\KillAllIgnoreList.reg"

%Comspec% /c reg.exe import "%ThirdParty%\KillAllIgnoreList.reg"

%WinDir%\Regedit.exe /s "%ThirdParty%\ReportingSettings.reg"

%Comspec% /c reg.exe import "%ThirdParty%\ReportingSettings.reg"

I’m now going to update to beta version 6.8.0.3 and see what happens. I’ll report back shortly.

Fred,

When I updated to beta 6.8.0.3 Things break again. Let me know what I can do to help you track down what’s going on.

Bill

Edit: I just tested with Version 6.8.0.0 and things are broken there as well.

Bill,

Let me try to reproduce it in my windows 8.1 first. If I can reproduce it, I'll fix it easily.

I'm sorta busy now, but I'll test it out this afternoon, and keep you posted.

Ok Fred, I’m still having some pretty good pain so I can’t sleep very well. I woke up and started messing around and thought I would report what I’m finding. There’s no hurry. I’m not trying to rush you. Thanks! :D

Hey, Bill, you're not alone.

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=861

Unfortunatelly, I tested on windows 8.1 and it worked fine for me. The issue seems to only happen on some systems. I'll be counting on you guys to help me to fix it, since I can not reproduce it.

I'm gonna make some more checks in the process monitoring function and upload a new beta. I'll let you know when it's released.

Thanks for your help.

Little update for you. I had issues on a windows 7 system and installing flash or java would simply hang, like with Bill.

I booted in safe mode and the problems were gone. Must be some kind of service or program running that messes with uvk

Yeah, like the antivirus software.

Anyway, I uploaded a new beta. If you guys don't mind to try it out, it's appreciated.

Great!

Just out of curiosity, do you guys mind to say which AV software you use?
