Crash When Installing DVDFab Plat 3.0.5.1.Beta to Vista RC2 Build 5744

I just downloaded and tried to install 3.0.5.1 Beta on Vista RC2 Build 5744, since I noticed in the description that it now has signed drivers for Vista.

But it crashed during installation, which I thought would interest the program’s writer/developer.

Here’s the Event Viewer report for the crash upon installation:

BETA version and Window Vista :confused: those two don’t mix… some security vendors had problems making their software compatible with Vista as well… it seem Microsoft aren’t as open regarding their new operating system schematic/specs or whatever they called it. :frowning:

why not use the 3.0.5.0 version instead?

The security vendors wanted access to the kernel of Vista, which MS wants no one messing with, so that the bad guys can’t access it either.

The reason for using the 3.0.5.1 was that the description said it has signed drivers for Vista, which I took to mean that the writers of DVDFab are saying that 3.0.5.1 is OK to install on Vista. Otherwise, what’s the point of adding Vista drivers?

Hopefully a DVD Fab developer will chime in to say something, if only “Fab is not ready for Vista yet,” or if only to say, "Fab won’t work on Vista Betas or RCs but will work on Vista RTM (Release To Manufacturing), or whatever.

Hello, DVD Fab developers? Is DVD Fab going to work on Vista?

They are in Beijing, where it is 1AM. Please be patient. They are in this forum almost daily and DO respond. Their internet service was disrupted by the earthquake off Taiwan last week; current status unknown.

EDIT: I see that you have been patient. You might want to try a PM to fengtao to ask for clarification.

Signed drivers shouldn’t matter unless your using Vista 64bit. Even then theres a way around that.

I see that 3.0.5.2Beta is out now and the description says a Vista crash siutation was addressed.

Will download and give it a try on Vista RC2 Build 5744.
