FIX for the 'DirectUpdate service crashes' problem!!

Postby TGCS » Sat Feb 23, 2008 1:10 pm

Here is a workaround that worked for me:

1) UNINSTALL DirectUpdate (control panel: add/remove programs)

2) Download the PREVIOUS VERSION (4.6.1) and choose "CUSTOM INSTALL" to install it into a DIFFERENT FOLDER than your last install.

This seems to be the critical step... I chose C:\program files\DU4\ as my installation path (the installer created the new folder for me)

3) IT WORKS AGAIN :-)

All the previous settings were still there in the registry! (DNS accounts, registration code, etc...)

Just remember, it seems to be VITAL that you put it in a new folder, and NOT in the "default installation path" (C:\program files\DirectUpdate 4 .. or whatever it would normally try to install to!)

BTW, here is the link to download version 4.6.1:
