Note On Directx Patch

Question

Maybe there should be a readme or note somewhere, or better yet a slight mod since the [kindly posted] DirectX install patch [ http://goo.gl/X7mnz ] automatically installs the streaming app -- there doesn't seem a way around it.

 

On a positive note it's not *too* bad to get rid of, at least if you prevent it from starting & configuring itself on re-boot. In XP Pro SP3 32 I used Autoruns [from SysInternals at Microsoft.com] to disable the run once key entry in the registry -- while you're in Autoruns you can also disable the 2 HipServ drivers/services, & I also disabled the 2 VBox drivers... FWIW the uninstall routine didn't get rid of those registry entries, without the referenced files they wouldn't/couldn't do much anyway, & the reason I disabled them was that it was before the necessary re-boot to make sure they'd uninstall without problems [no idea if it helped or not, but un-checking 4 boxes seemed easier than finding out]. As uninstall didn't show up in Add/Remove programs, I used "MsiExec.exe /I{B44C746E-2A9E-4184-9FF8-7A44FCA749CE}" in Windows' Start Menu Run box -- found that in the registry in one of its uninstall keys. Besides the [default] folder in Program Files\Roxio there was also a "Axentra Corporation" folder in All Users\Application Data, plus the folder that setup put on the desktop.

Mikym,

 

What are you talking about?

 

I've read your post carefully three times now, and I feel like I am hearing one side of a conversation that has been going for five minutes before I got there.

 

Please explain the relevance of this post, because although I'm pretty intuitive I'm quite lost, and I think most of your readers will be in the same position.

 

What Roxio software are you talking about?

Who provides the "DirectX Install Patch" you mention?

What is it supposed to be for?

 

Thank you,

Brendon
