SP V4.0.0.118 Installation Error in Registry RUN keys

Post by siliconman01 » Thu Nov 05, 2009 10:01 pm

This is on Windows 7 x64 Professional.

I installed SP V4.0.0.118 Beta on a fresh installation of Window 7 x64 Professional. On installation, the beta installer set the Default value of HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run to "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Sticky Password\\stpass.exe". It also added a normal startup entry as "StickyPassword"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Sticky Password\\stpass.exe". This caused two copies of SP to try to load on system reboot. The second load could not access the database and issued an error that the database was corrupt.

I had to delete the DEFAULT value to reset it.
