  1. Dial-a-Fix hangs at dmloader.dll

    version.dll probably crashes because dmloader is corrupted (like in the other post) and being corrupted causes garbage versioning information to be passed back to Dial-a-fix. Dial-a-fix 1.0 (if it ever gets off the ground) doesn't crash when passed garbage version information (already worked on that), and will probably be able to figure this out automatically.   Please support Dial-a-fix 1.0!
  2. Please like on facebook! Please tell your techie friends to like! Please tell everyone to send money! --- I don't want this to die, and neither does anyone else. But I need financial help if I'm ever going to find time to work on this again. If everyone sends a few bucks, I may be able to take time off from my 17 hour workdays (6.5 days a week) to work on Dial-a-fix. It's because of the work I have to endure just to stay in debt that takes me away from Dial-a-fix. Please help! - DjLizard
  3. DialAFix v1.0 Work In Progress

    Hi all, You can follow DialAFix's development and post suggestions on Facebook! I have also been posting progress on my blog. Cheers.
  4. Dial-a-fix deleted c:\documents ... wtf

    I'm sorry to all who have lost data, I really suck. I have returned from the grave and I am working on Dial-a-fix 1.0 which is rewritten from scratch and will not contain this bug. Edit: no to freepascal, this is being rewritten using Turbo Delphi 2006.
  5. dial a fix and xp office

    You'll need to make a proper post, detailing all of the specific problems you're having with Office. Dial-a-fix doesn't really do much for Office, though there are a few tangential things it can fix.
  6. SP3 and cryptography service

    Explore C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 and see which of the following files exist. This is every single file that may or may not be present on your system that has anything to do with the Cryptography service (or is used by CryptSvc). You may not have a few of these files and that's OK. Just let me know a list of ones you do not have. ACTIVEDS.DLL ADSLDPC.DLL ADVAPI32.DLL ADVPACK.DLL APPHELP.DLL ATL.DLL AUTHZ.DLL BROWSEUI.DLL CABINET.DLL CDFVIEW.DLL CERTCLI.DLL CFGMGR32.DLL CLUSAPI.DLL COMCTL32.DLL COMDLG32.DLL CREDUI.DLL CRYPT32.DLL CRYPTDLG.DLL CRYPTEXT.DLL CRYPTSVC.DLL CRYPTUI.DLL CSCDLL.DLL DBGHELP.DLL DEVMGR.DLL DHCPCSVC.DLL DNSAPI.DLL DOT3API.DLL DOT3DLG.DLL DSSENH.DLL DUSER.DLL DWMAPI.DLL EAPOLQEC.DLL EAPPCFG.DLL EAPPPRXY.DLL EFSADU.DLL ESENT.DLL GDI32.DLL GDIPLUS.DLL GPKCSP.DLL HLINK.DLL HNETCFG.DLL IEFRAME.DLL IERTUTIL.DLL IEUI.DLL IMAGEHLP.DLL IMGUTIL.DLL IMM32.DLL INETCOMM.DLL INITPKI.DLL IPHLPAPI.DLL KERNEL32.DLL LICDLL.DLL LINKINFO.DLL LZ32.DLL MFC42U.DLL MLANG.DLL MOBSYNC.DLL MPR.DLL MPRAPI.DLL MPRUI.DLL MSASN1.DLL MSGINA.DLL MSHTML.DLL MSI.DLL MSIMG32.DLL MSLS31.DLL MSOERT2.DLL MSRATING.DLL MSSIGN32.DLL MSSIP32.DLL MSVCP60.DLL MSVCRT.DLL MSWSOCK.DLL NETAPI32.DLL NETCFGX.DLL NETMAN.DLL NETPLWIZ.DLL NETRAP.DLL NETSHELL.DLL NETUI0.DLL NETUI1.DLL NETUI2.DLL NORMALIZ.DLL NTDLL.DLL NTDSAPI.DLL NTLANMAN.DLL ODBC32.DLL OLE32.DLL OLEACC.DLL OLEAUT32.DLL OLEDLG.DLL OLEPRO32.DLL ONEX.DLL POWRPROF.DLL PRINTUI.DLL PSAPI.DLL QUERY.DLL QUTIL.DLL RASAPI32.DLL RASDLG.DLL RASMAN.DLL REGAPI.DLL REGWIZC.DLL RPCRT4.DLL RSAENH.DLL RTUTILS.DLL SAMLIB.DLL SCARDSSP.DLL SCCBASE.DLL SCECLI.DLL SECUR32.DLL SETUPAPI.DLL SHDOCVW.DLL SHELL32.DLL SHLWAPI.DLL SHSVCS.DLL SLBCSP.DLL SOFTPUB.DLL TAPI32.DLL URLMON.DLL USER32.DLL USERENV.DLL USP10.DLL UTILDLL.DLL UXTHEME.DLL VERSION.DLL W32TOPL.DLL WINHTTP.DLL WININET.DLL WINMM.DLL WINSCARD.DLL WINSPOOL.DRV WINSTA.DLL WINTRUST.DLL WLDAP32.DLL WMI.DLL WS2_32.DLL WS2HELP.DLL WSOCK32.DLL WTSAPI32.DLL WZCDLG.DLL WZCSAPI.DLL WZCSVC.DLL
  7. The file is probably corrupted. Search your hard drive for alternate copies of dmloader.dll and replace the one in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 with it. It's part of Direct Music, so reinstalling DirectX 9 might actually fix it too; I don't know.
  8. opening message.dial-a-fix

    Yep, it doesn't support IE 8 so it will ignore a few things. Other parts of DAF will still work. Just ignore that until IE 8 is fully supported by Dial-a-fix.
  9. MS Office Libary.

    Dial-a-fix won't run in limited user accounts, and wouldn't really be able to fix this if it did since it has not been specifically programmed to fix this. :( If you run it in the Administrator account, however, it's safe to check all boxes in section 5, the registration center. You won't need the other sections.
  10. RPC errors

    It depends on what you mean by "RPC". A) If you mean the actual "Remote Procedure Call" service, there is almost nothing Dial-a-fix can do to solve that, as it is a core service. Pretty much nothing works if the RPC service won't start. Windows wants to restart automatically whenever the Remote Procedure Call service fails. There aren't any known "fix-all" solutions for the RPC service like there are for Windows Update, etc. B) If you mean the generic error "The RPC server is unavailable", this is actually not in reference to the aforementioned "Remote Procedure Call" service. This generic error actually means that a process tried to communicate with a service that is unavailable (i.e., talked to a "Disabled" service as if it wasn't, without trying to check that it is running first). Generic errors like these would be fixed on a case-by-case basis since anything can cause this to happen to any other thing.
  11. Auto Updates Does Not Start

    Wot's this then. The only things Dial-a-fix doesn't (yet) do that WUFix does are: place Windows Update sites in the Trusted Zone, place Windows Update sites in the exception list of IE Popup Blocker The problem is that most people don't notice the "Flush SoftwareDistribution" button which does the other half of the stuff you mentioned. The next version of Dial-a-fix will do all of the above but I am not going to place any sites in the Trusted Zone or IE Popup Blocker exceptions because it is unnecessary. I will make sure that they don't go onto the *block* lists, but there's no need for them to be in the Trusted Zone or other exceptions.
  12. IE8 Beta

    Fixes for beta products should come from their originators Contact Microsoft. You'll eventually learn that beta + Microsoft = devastating hell :huh:
  13. I guess it would have helped if I had actually put the solution to this in the tips section; my fault! Tarun: the explanation is simple (i.e., please make a writeup on the tips section about this for me, since it's very common and easy to fix). The service is stuck in a state of either stopping or starting, and thus cannot be immediately deleted and recreated by Dial-a-fix. When Dial-a-fix tries this, Windows flags it for removal on the next reboot, which also makes it to where nothing else can be done to the service. Once you reboot, you no longer even HAVE the service. It's just gone completely. This is actually a good thing - now you can reinstall it without any interference. For any given service that is marked by Windows because of Dial-a-fix wanting to change its state while stuck, you just have to reboot and then run the same section(s) in Dial-a-fix that you ran before. (This could happen to any service that Dial-a-fix wants to adjust, not just wuauserv.) The unusual part about bpb's post is that rebooting and running it again DIDN'T fix it. So, when you make the writeup for this, mention that 'wuauserv' / Windows Updates service is the most common thing that this happens to, and also tell users to Flush SoftwareDistribution before AND after running "Fix Windows Update" because flushing is usually the part that fixes their original problem (and usually fixes the reason the service got stuck in the first place). bpb: Reboot to start from a clean slate, run Dial-a-fix, click "Flush SoftwareDistribution" and click NO, reboot again, *then* check "Fix Windows Update" and click GO. Hopefully you won't get the error again. If you still do, this would be a first for me, and that means it's being caused by something I've yet to encounter (which is unusual because I've encountered practically everything ).
  14. This has actually happened before... it turns out it is because the default template removes limited user accounts from the Users group, which is what my post above was about (replacing the group declaration in the INF). Have you tested it again with another limited user account? Am I to understand you are actually able to use repair permissions without it breaking limited user accounts now? o_O
  15. I just thought of this, and I've never tested it, but it just might work: Open the following file in notepad: C:\WINDOWS\INF\defltwk.inf (This is the file "repair permissions" calls) Find the following lines: [Group Membership] %SceInfUsers%__Memberof = Add this after the equals sign: *S-1-5-32-545 It will now look like this: [Group Membership] %SceInfUsers%__Memberof = *S-1-5-32-545 Save the file, and run DAF's repair permissions again. Warning: if I somehow misunderstand how this works then this could break something else. If you want to be safe, make a backup copy of SAM and SECURITY before proceeding. (You can Google "ERDNT" do make a full registry hive backup or use System Restore to set a restore point or something, I guess. More info at the Lunarsoft wiki in the System Volume Information article).
