Frankcollela, you are a genius!

 

My computer started acting strangely last week (taking a very long time to boot) and, after running all my spyware, adware and anti-virus software, I decided to reinstall Windows XP.

 

After that, I started getting this DAO.msi error message about the time my Roxio software would run on startup. I googled various parts of the error message and read several responses, none of which helped. (this is, apparantly, not a problem limited to Roxio software).

 

I found your post, cut, pasted and ran the two lines and it worked!

 

Video Card : AT1 I 9800 Pro

Software: Roxio Easy Media Creator 8

 

Thanks Again! :)

Today I installed Easy Media Creator 9.

 

Every time I would start it up it would try to run dao.msi .

 

I did the unregister/register trick described above and the trouble went away.

 

I have the Radeon x1600 Series display adapter and the ATI DTV Wonder TV card installed.

These divices caused no problem until I installed the Easy Media Creator 9.

I just upgraded to EMC 8 and started receiving the error message about the dao.msi file.

 

The unregister and reregister of the DLL solved the problem. Thanks.

 

I'm running a Dell 8250 with an All-in-Wonder Radeon 9000 pro card.

 

I don't remember what version of the ATI software download I'm running. I was having problems with the TV tuner after installing a webcam several months ago and I believe that XP found the driver when I rebuilt my system.

This Fix did work on my computer, but after i used it now i need to shut down the processes

mannualy.

 

I did not have a problem with roxio shuting down properly until i used this fix.

 

If you are not going to use ATI's Meda Libary it is better to delete DAO from you PC.

 

I dont have a problem shuting down Roxio on my Laptop it does not have ati tv card.

 

The Post i have seen about processes not shuting down, my question is this

did you run the dao fix posted here? if so the fix works but has a side efect.

I had this same problem after installing EMC9, Radeon x1600 graphics card and ATI HDTV card in that order. When I tried to use EMC9 I got the DAO install error and I did the unregister/register described above and it fixed the problem

I have an ATI Radeon 9700 and this fix worked for me. Roxio should provide a fix in the installation program.

:) I just reinstalled Ver 8 and also the fix Ver 8.05 and again experienced the DAO problem.

I have used Roxio for a number of years as well as ATI and I dont know who is at fault except to say thanks for jogging my memory about registring the dll file.

 

It works !! and that is all that matters. Hat off to the chap who initially found the fix.

 

Regards,

 

Peter

I just found this after installing Media Creator 8 Deluxe Suite and watching this DAO error message loop every time I tried to start MC8. I don't have an ATI video card (Asus/NVIDIA) but I do have an ATI HDTV Wonder card for TV viewing. Anyway, the fix worked great! Thanks! :huh:

What do you mean by "initialize the roxio product you are using." ?

Thanks. I have an ATI AIW X800XT and today had some problems installing driver updates. As directed in their FAQ on the issue, did a full removal of all ATI software, then installed the current files . Still got the goofy error messages from ATI, so I tried it all again, but with the same result. So, I called ATI support, who said this was a known DAO conflict with the DAOs in the Roxio software and directed me to UNISTALL all ROXIO software!!! Like a dummy, I did. He then transferred me to a senior, to walk me through the ATI software update installation. The Senior Tech put me on the right path and sent some intsturctions by email to fix the ATI DAO issue. All of which did work for the ATI AIW update.

 

Fortunately, the senior ATI Tech said that this was a know issue in a DAO conflict with Roxio but that there was now a patch to fix it and also sent me an email with a link to this thread. He also said that the intial Tech I spoke with was wrong and now that there was a Sonic workaround, he should NOT have recommended that I unintall the Sonic products. (Glad ATI is getting its signals straightened out.)

 

And even more fortunately, I had kept the downloaded Roxio 8 installation files elsewhere, together with the email from Sonic that confirmed my order and provided my installation codes. So, I was able to reinstall the EMC 8 software suite and CD content package.

 

THEN I ran the cut and paste fix you described.

 

The point being, the DAO conflict can crop up in an ATI update or install just as it can with a Roxio EMC 8 install. Best to be careful in each case. And absolutely no need to uninstall your Sonic software in order to get your ATI product to run. Just use the fix show in this thread.

 

All is, so far, now running smoothly.

 

So, thanks for the fix, frankcollela.

I have an ATI Radeon 9700 and this fix worked for me. Roxio should provide a fix in the installation program.

 

Funny, I have the ATI Radeon 9800 and had no problem in the installation process. I had no problem when I had my ATI Radeon 9700 card, either.

 

It looks like it is something else on your computer causing the problem, not the Roxio software.

If the above command line options are not working for you, you can remove the DAO from Add/Remove programs using the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility available from the Microsoft website.

 

William

Is there more than one version of Installer? I went to the one linked from Roxann that says to totally uninstall creator 7 (which is not my problem -- it won't let me add/remove DAO) - dates back to 8 2004?? Newer version?? Will it let me select only the program I want to remove and not mess up any others?

 

 

Thanks !

Surprised what problem isn't fixed? It looks fixed to me.

Software fixed? $70 and I have to repair it? Not to be flippant we're lucky to have the skills to complete the task, many folks out there have to pay someone to repair these minor problems.

Just figured Roxio would have been able to find the problem and stop it from happening given the time frame.

Sorry to have caused you any grief.

 

Back to lurking.
