    Just my $0.02, but I have doubts that it's a windows problem, or a Road Runner problem.

    A problem I have encountered is with Adobe products and their install/remove software. Both Adobe and Symantec (Norton Anti-virus) leave behind a good many things after telling windows to remove the product. It's almost impossible to go "back" a version. I experienced this when trying to install Adobe Acrobat Pro V6, over the top of Adobe Acrobat Reader V7.

    The only solution I know is to remove the Adobe (or Symantec product), then using a program (or manually) edit the Windows registry to clean the system of all traces.

    If, as I have assumed, the issue is not with folks who have a V9 flash, then install a V8 flash, my apology for wasting bandwidth.

    Do a search for a stand alone version of flash. If you try to install the browser plugin from Adobe it won't work. Here is the one I used

    Download Flash Player 9 (Complete Standalone Installer) - free download of the full Flash Player installer

    Roadrunner locks just after starting to load winamp

    Evening all, first post and sorry to say it's one needing your help...

    Starting road runner I get the roadrunner splash screen indicating "Starting Winamp", here the windows error sound and loose the start bar across the bottom of the screen. Three finger salute brings up Task Manager showing roadrunner @ 95% CPU utilization. Only way to correct the start bar problem is to restart.

    Some info and steps I've already tried:

    1. Using latest version of Roadrunner (4/11/2007) - this of course is on the soon to be installed machine, two other installations, one on a similar e-pc42 and another on a IBM 240x laptop run fine, same skins and external components. Even the problematic flash skin mentioned below works fine on both, just not the one going into the car.

    2. have removed flash, winamp (v.2.95) and roadrunner multiple times, uninstalled using the flash remover, have yet to try the regedit method of clearing every instance of flash, although I have done the regedit for roadrunner and winamp...

    3. Saw another post recommending flash 8, have tried that to no avail. Also another suggestion was to kick back the hardware aceleration a notch, no joy there either.

    4.Had been running fine, was trying a flash type skin with some funkiness, didn't like so switched back to Chuck's...shut machine down and now bupkiss.
    ( remember I've unistalled roadrunner and used regedit to remove all instances from registry, so even the skin from straight out of the shoot is fracked up)

    5. one other issue was I did install XP SP2 just after patch Tuesday this month... are there known issues with SP2?

    6. Application log shows the following 2 error messages each time roadrunner starts and locks:

    Event ID:1002
    Hanging application RoadRunner.exe, version 1.0.0.0, hang module hungapp, version 0.0.0.0, hang address 0x00000000.

    Event ID:1001
    Fault bucket 31461586.


    7. reloading the OS may be the only fix, but it sure would be good to find the root cause and save others from this sand trap...


    suggestions anyone? Thanks for your time.

    1) Re-register GDIPluswrapper (regsvr32 GDIPluswrapper.dll)
    2) Run RRConfig...& check all settings/paths...specially skin paths.

    Wizz, thanks for the fast response,

    1) Re-register GDIPluswrapper (regsvr32 GDIPluswrapper.dll) Done

    2) Run RRConfig...& check all settings/paths...specially skin paths. Done

    Still no joy...what is the debug mode switch, perhaps I can get the info I need to fix this there...?
