    Help: CF RC4.2 fails to start on Win2k

    Ok, i have been a Centrafuse user for the past ~ 6 months (on this platform [OS & CPU]); and other than a few minor glitches it's been great. Today i rebooted my car PC, and got the "Beta expired" message (RC4). I got home, downloaded the newest software. Deinstalled the old version, deleted the Centrafuse folder, and reinstalled from the MSI package (just as i have done with the past 3-4 updates). I entered the new key when prompted.

    Now, during startup after the screen changes to "Loading Plugins" i get a nasty windows like error:

    Exception message:
    The path is not of a legal form.
    Exception type name:
    System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException
    Exception source:
    mscorlib
    Exception method:
    InternalInvoke
    ...

    When I close the error Centrafuse closes! I reinstalled, rebooted, etc, and I am getting the same error. There is NO error.log (for fun i removed the plugins folder as a test, i got an error.log with the message that folder was missing, but still the same messsage during setup). I HAVE NO CENTRAFUSE.

    I cant' believe no one else has run into this. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    I added in code to auto add My Music, My Videos, My Pictures paths from My Documents, which probably don't exist on your system...

    I fixed this in RC4.3 already...

    open settings.xml and set <FIRSTRUN>False</FIRSTRUN>

    Then open config.xml and remove the music, video, picture paths and you will be fine...

    Sorry about that... I used the .NET method to give it to me, SpecialDirectory class, didn't test on Win2000 though... Haven't had one of those around for awhile...

    I know check for directory exists before I add them...
