I receive a blue screen with the Stop error "DRIVER_ULOADED_WITHOUT_CANCELLING_PENDING_OPERATIONS - cdr4_2k.sys" when Windows is loading when Windows Media Player 9 series is installed on Windows 2000 Professional with Service Pack 4 with DivX Player 6.5 (or newer) is installed.
cdr4_2k.sys is a component of the Roxio burning engine.
I have two software applications that use Roxio components and for which their installers install Roxio components:Windows Media Player 9 series
(installs cdr4_2k.sys 22.214.171.124 to "C:\WINNT\system32\drivers")
DivX Player 6.5
(installs cdr4_2k.sys 126.96.36.199 to "C:\WINNT\system32\drivers")The problem (blue screen) does not manifest if the applications are installed in sequential order, increasing, of the version of the Roxio burning engine; all application would be installed and the highest Roxio burning engine (driver) would be used.
It is not desirable to have to always install (or possibly reinstall if an application in the sequence is modified) applications in a certain order.
The burning functions of the applications using Roxio components are not used.
Does an updater exist for the Roxio burning engine that would update the Roxio burning engine without a Roxio application installed?
Can the Roxio burning engine be removed from systems using it, to at most cripple to the burning function of the applications using the Roxio components? If so, how?
