Cd Creator At Bootup in Easy CD Creator 4 and 5 Posted March 13, 2006 · Report reply Hi again Reid, Thanks for your reply. Sorry, I didn't mean what put that value in the registry, I meant what key did you copy the value from. You answered that, from the "run" key we named. No problems there, thanks. My problem is that the form of what you typed isn't duplicated on my machine. Here is the sort of thing I see . . . The top slice is from Windows XP(SP2)[where I don't have ECDC] and the bottom slice is from Win98 where I do have ECDC. There's no %%DELETE_VALUE%% to be seen in either one. You should have MSCONFIG.EXE, it's part of XP. (Just go to Start / Run and, type msconfig and press enter) but if you haven't got it here's another way to fix this. I'm afraid you DO NEED to manually edit the registry this time, but I'll show you the safe way to do it. 1) Back up the RUN key. When you have it highlighted in blue like mine, go to the Regedit toolbar File / Export. . . and export a copy of that key. It will be saved in a small text file. Give it a name and say where to save it, and it will have a .REG extension. e.g. call it "run" and it will be saved as RUN.REG. -if you need to fully restore that key to its original state, just double-click on run.reg, answer "yes" and the key will be fully restored. 2) Find the CreateCD entry, the one with "CreateCD50.exe" in it. (It's the fourth entry in my Win98 picture) highlight the name entry next to the [ab] box and delete that line with the Del key. 3) Exit from Regedit, and restart the system. You should find the the project starter won't start when Windows starts any more. If you have Direct CD installed but don't want it to run, deleting the Direct CD entry from this key will stop that running, too. I hope that's clear, but if it's not then please come back and ask more.
