    DLA and Windows Vista

    FWIW, I also updated to Vista the other day and had a similar problem with DLA, I ran across this clunky method related to manually removing DLA from XP but appears to be workable with Vista once you sort out the locations, but be warned, not for the faint of heart. Solution WARNING!- This will remove DLA completely. Note: These instructions apply specifically to Windows XP. To perform a clean reinstallation of DLA. 1) Uninstall the current copy of DLAusing the "Add/Remove Programs," control panel. 2) Delete the "DLA," folder from your Program Files folder. (By default this is located inside: C:\Program Files\Sonic\) 3) Edit the Registry to remove entries relating specifically to DLA. (As a precaution, please export any registry entries before deleting them.) a. To start the Registry Editor, click on "Start," click on to "Run," type "regedit," and click "OK." b. Open the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" folder. (If this folder does not exist, proceed to step f.) c. Open the "Software" folder. d. Open the "Sonic" folder. e. Right-click on the "Direct Access" folder and select delete. f. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Sonic. g. Right-click on the "Direct Access" folder and select delete. h. Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID. i. Right-click on the "{5CA3D70E-1895-11CF-8E15-001234567890}" folder and select delete. (This data for the "Default," setting in this folder should be "DriveLetterAccess.") j. Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products. k. Right-click on the "29FE602138E2958RCABC02843CBCD76A" folder and select delete. l. Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ m. Right-click on the "VERITAS.DLAEventHandler" folder and select delete. n. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID. o. Right-click on the "{5CA3D70E-1895-11CF-8E15-001234567890}" folder and select delete. (This data for the "Default," setting in this folder should be "DriveLetterAccess.") p. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes. q. Right-click on the "VERITAS.DLAEventHandler" folder and select delete. r. Got to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg. s. Right-click on the "dla" folder and select delete. t. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AutoplayHandlers\Handlers. u. Right-click on "VxDlaCdOnArrival" and select delete. v. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ w. Right-click on the "{1206EF92-2E83-4859-ACCB-2048C3CB7DA6}" folder and select delete. 4) Restart your computer. 5) Delete the "DLA," folder from the System32 folder. (This is located inside: C:\Windows\System32) 6) Reinstall DLA. Note this set is whether your current version is compatable with Vista Good Luck, note on my install, the Sonic folder was label Veritas, may have been related to the version.
