After a silent installation of Real PLayer Gold 10.x the player always asks the user to register and make some configurations. How can I prevent that???

Thanks a lot.

You have to make a snapshot of the registry keys with the good configuration and then to apply them to everyone.

Thats what I tried but that doesn't work correctly. After that the whole configuration of the Real PLayer is screwed. I think the snapshot returns way to many keys that are not necessary

If it's the same problem I had then you need to alter the default values in the following 2 keys:

HKCU\Software\RealNetworks\RealPlayer\6.0\Preferences\DataCacheCheck
HKCU\Software\RealNetworks\RealPlayer\6.0\Preferences\LastLoginTime

They have a numeric value which translate to a date - you can change the system date and see the values change, then stick them in your package. I set my values to 1281349658 which translates to 9th August 2010.

This should stop the config box popping up until then... [;)]

Hope this solves you problem and saves you some head scratching!

Rob.

Does your package works fine? Doesn't rjmisc.dll do any harm?

My package hangs when I try open CD properties under Tool/Preferences menu.

hi,
try using this one to turn off registration everytime user launches the app RealPlayer 10

Software\RealNetworks\RealPlayer\6.0\Preferences\LastLoginTime
Value = 999999999999999999

Remove UPDATE_OB folder from the package and update feature will disappear

hope this helps

Pretty sure I had the same probs with CD section of Tools / Properties.

Think you need to add some keys in to your package under HKCU\Software\RealNetworks\RealJukebox\1.0\Preferences to get it working.. Get regmon on the case to be sure - also, check against a vendor installation.

Cheers,
Rob.

I've checked that. Everything seems to be fine - reg entries are identical in my package and in vendor version as well. I'm pretty sure that the problem is caused by rjmisc.dll file.

Do you recognise that?

Not specifically but it's nearly a year since I packaged this and it took a while to get there..

There are a few ridiculously long reg values under: HKCU\Software\RealNetworks\RealPlayer\6.0\Preferences\PluginHandlerData you may want to investigate as the rjmisc.dll file you mention as it is referenced in there..

Also if you are using Wise - I found it couldn't capture the package properly and had to resort to other utilities to get the package working. I used prism pack but I guess others will do the trick too. Found Wise was missing a lot of \software\classes entries which prism picked up..

An old but good trick is to 1) install u're broken package 2) do a pre snap 3) uninstall u're package and install the vendor package 4) do a post snap and see what's changed

Sorry I can't be more specific - this one was a challenge for sure and I was pretty happy to see the back of it.

Regards,
Rob.
