I did a complete uninstall of EMC 10 (in fact 10.1) since all of the components suddenly refused to start (not exactly sure of the cause). Something to do with the license file that got corrupted (might have been caused by some registry cleaning program).
I removed all of the Roxio/Sonic folders and registry keys that I could find.
Now, I can't re-install the product. After I select the products to install from within the installation wizard (both 10.0 from CD and 10.1 from downloaded file), I get a "Setup application has stopped working" window.
Event log shows:
Faulting application setup.exe_Setup Application, version 22.214.171.124, time stamp 0x4857f91e, faulting module USER32.dll, version 6.0.6002.18005, time stamp 0x49e0380e, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x00016a9c, process id 0x1fd0, application start time 0x01cecf952a0524e0.
Using Windows Vista Home premium fully patched.
Any clue of what I could try?
