Windows Update kills Roxio?

I just tried to use my Roxio software to burn a CD. First time I've used it in
a month or so.

Upon starting Creator Classic I got:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error!
Program: ...LES\ROXIO\EASY CD CREATOR 6\EASY CD CREATOR\CREATORC.EXE
abnormal program termination

followed by:

Creatorc
Creatorc has caused an error in CREATOR.DLL
Creatorc will now close.
If you continue to experience problems,
try restarting your computer.

Of course, restarting doesn't help.

But upon tracking down CREATOR.DLL I found files by that name in both:

C:\Program Files\Adaptec Shared\CreatorAPI\
C:\Program Files\Roxio Shared\CreatorAPI\

The ones in "Adaptec Shared" dated 04\30\05, those in Roxio Shared dated
(mostly) 11/26/04.

When I saved the ones in "Adaptec Shared" and replaced them with those in "Roxio
Shared" the program now starts and runs, though I get the second error above
upon exit. Since I haven't run the Roxio update utility for months, I'm
assuming the ones in Adaptec Shared came in via Windows Update or, perhaps, when
I updated Media Player to version 9.

The question is, has anyone else experienced this failure, and do you have a
more reasonable, or maybe more complete, way around it than what I've done? I
did save the 04/30/05 files, so I can put them back.

Go to the Roxio site and update version 6. I had problems until I did. I
would have to check the version number for the engine, but there are about 5
updates for 5 different parts of Roxio.

I just checked in Programs/Roxio/EasyCD Creator......and have a look at the
file called "Creatorc.exe".....the version number I have is 6.1.1.48. That
is the updated version number.

Post back if you need any more information.

Cheers.....Heather

If I could find the flippin' CD, I'd try it. It's their standard suggestion for
anything like this, I had something similar happen over a year ago.

I dug through everything this morning. I found the empty box with the manual,
but so far haven't turned up the CD. At least with the box I've got the ID
number on the bottom so I can deal with them.

I tried. Their updater says my version is at the latest revision levels. Or, I
should say, it does once I replace all the files in Adaptec Shared with those in
Roxio Shared. Before I do that, it claims I need the updater itself updated,
but when I tell it to go ahead, it hangs.

Yep. I tried them all. They ALL say I'm up to date.

I've got 6.2.0.111

Thanks for the suggestions. Looks like we see the same ideas, which is a bit of
good news.

I managed to get rid of the crash-on-exit when I noticed that both Adaptec
Shared and Roxio Shared also have a CreatorEngine directory. When I copied the
Roxio files into the Adaptec directory, the crash went away.

No, not quite. I'm assuming that something put those 04/30/05 files in that
directory for a reason. As I recall, the 30th was when I finally gave in and
updated wo Media Player 9 (I'd stayed with 8 until then). I'm wondering what's
not going to work correctly now that I've downgraded those files to versions a
couple of years old.

Funny. You buy me lunch (caution: I have expensive tastes), and I'll pay you.
You'll probably only loose about $40 to $60 in the deal.

I find it odd that WU would update an app, AFAIK it restricts itself to
OS, M$ core apps and (basic) HW drivers.

So, my guess is that you've got a Roxio updater that starts when you
boot up; check

Start/Programs/Startup and
Start/Run/msconfig.exe|Startup

Which is why I think it was the Media Player 9 upgrade, which was applied on
04/30/05. Seeing that all these files are also 04/30/05, it's too big a
coincidence to ignore. When I posted my first message on this, I'd *thought*
I'd upgraded earlier, and that perhaps it was one of the two or three WU alerts
I got after that telling me to critical updates to MP9 were available, all of
which I took. But I now see that I did the MP9 upgrade on the 30th.

I turned the automatic thing off right after I noticed it was there back when I
first installed Roxio back in 2003. Still, that occurred to me so I did check.
It's still off.

Hi Bill.....

I now see that you have Roxio 6 *Platinum*.......that version number you
have identifies it. Did you make sure you checked the Platinum upgrades??
My version is plain Roxio 6....no photo program.

As for WMP 9......I wouldn't have that on this machine ever!! I have
version 7 and if I remember correctly, version 9 causes problems. The
others can say if that is right.

Cheers.....Heather

Bill, has your version of mfc42.dll been replaced? I believe that is the
Microsoft visual C++ library.

WMP9 has native burning capability provided by Roxio - so yes, it could be

Sorry, should have mentioned that. On the other hand, I didn't load the photo
stuff, so I never really think of it.

I think so. The automatic updater (which I don't let run automatically), one
would think, would do it's job properly. I just checked, and the place I went
to manually collect the updates does say "Platinum."

I had 8 for a long long time. Then I wanted to play... something... I don't
recall which, which my son had played on my second machine. It worked on 9 but
not on 8. So I updated. Other than this problem (assuming it was caused by
it), I haven't seen any other problems. That doesn't mean the problems aren't
lurking in there, but only this so far. Of course, if I'd *know* this was going
to happen, I'd have probably skipped it.

If it's a Legit copy, Bill, use the Registration number, call Roxio and they
"should" supply you will a download link for a full installation.
With emphasis on /should/ -

Good luck.

I hadn't thought of that. I figured I'd have to try to talk them into sending
another CD.

I did find the box, and the manual. The number is on the bottom of the box, and
I wrote it on the first page of the manual too. I'm just annoyed that I can't
find the CD itself. It *should* be in the computer CD bin to the right of my
desk, but it's not. I'm afraid I *may* have thought it was one of the free
Basic ones I got with something or other and tossed it. My fears rise in that I
*did* find the freebie Basic CD in there.

> With emphasis on /should/ -

Right. :) 

> Good luck.

Either way. I'd prefer to find the thing, but if not, I'll have to get another
incase I end up with no option but to reinstall.

Nitpicking, I suppose, but presumably you mean 7.1, as 8.0 is XP only.

Some nits should be picked, though I can't say for sure this is one of them.

As may be, now that you mention it, you're no doubt right. I *distinctly*
recall it being 7.something at one time, but I thought I'd upgraded FROM that to
another version. Perhaps I'm recalling upgrading TO it instead.

:) 

I must re-invigorate a system for dual-boot sometime in the near future!! -
for various reasons, my only available ME installs are as Virtual PC's,
which doesn't give me the same response as I need in some cases

To do that I have to install a 120GB HD into this system, copy
across........ then install the freed HD to the alternate system and create
the dual-boot there.

Oh, what fun!!!

Whenever a BIOS issue comes up that I don't remember, it's "well I could
find out but then I'd have to reboot..."
