    NeoCar Media Center - Unexpected error

    I took the liberty of starting this thread (I hope you dont mind Netsuo) to try and debug the Unexpected error on Neocar Media Center, while we dont get our own forum for this promising app...

    Anyways people that still have problems please try the following and post feedback...

    Check your "Services" (Under Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services), whether the DCOM Server Process Launcher is started. Apparently VB6 apps require this to be started and some apps disable this. (I havent had time to go to my carpc that is having trouble, but it looks like a plausible thing, because I installed a nLite verison of windows with a lot of stuff disable for a quick boot)... I am also for some reason unable to stop this process on my current test machine so I cant test it out...


    I hope this helps... And NetSuo keep the updates coming! We love Betas, if you dont wanna just throw it out here I'd love to beta test for you... I should be getting my xenarc one of these days and then I'll be really testing this stuff hardcore!

    I don't have this service in the list

    The strange thing is, I had the application running fine, but after I changed some power and appearance settings in XP, it now gives me the unexpected error!

    I changed everything back but that didn't solve the problem...

    I hope to find something.

    I dont think so...

    Netsuo is working hard on a new release version, with many new improvements... On his list is also some detective work comparing differences between v05 and v06, which is when the error began (I can run 05 on my carpc fine, but it is much more limited than 06)...

    I will also be installing my carpc again without SP2 to see what gives...

    From my findings, try either updating video drivers or changing video card just to test...

    I found that with my onboard intell video adapter on a Dell computer, it didnt work at all, now when i changed video cards it worked!

    All the best

    Thumbs up RESOLVED (for me)

    Confirmed!

    Thanks a bunch RoyN!

    That did the trick. I went straight to my car when I read your post and fiddled around a bit with the display settings. This is what I did:

    -Set display to 16bit color, 800x600 (was 32bit, 800x600)
    -Tried to start NMC -> "Erreur inattendu"
    -Set display back to 32bit, but now 1024x768
    -Tried to start NMC, and it started but was only 800x600 pixels big
    -Closed NMC and set display back to 32bit, 800x600
    -Tried to start NMC, and it DID! Yessss....

    All this at 60Hz, with VIA epia MII 12000 on a Xenarc, new gen.

    Now I can start making a skin
