Hi, I appreciate all the help for us 64bit vista users...but I still get an error. Also I have no way to uncheck the 32bit install..I can only uncheck the add Eraser to the recycle bin entries area, (see the 32bit core install box is completely grey)
Also I notice on install I have the visual C++ install 2 times ..one of which is 64bit.
I do not have UAC enabled as it such a pain.
I tried installing Eraser with and without unchecking (uninstall and reboot inbetween)...and I get errors.
This Is best I can do by unchecking...the 32 bit only has grey box
This is the error
I was hoping I wouldnt have to report bad news...as you all are working hard on this.
I tried first to install Eraser 5.86a completly with all items checked and got the error..Then uninstalled/reboot and tried installing with 32bit unchecked. I guess this really is no biggie as the portable is working well..but im here to try to help.
The redistributables only show when I install Eraser...not sure if any of my programs rely on it at all (everything works fine yet without it except the X64 redistributable is still in add/remove as its stuck there). I was just trying to do a clean install before reinstalling Eraser, also did a regedit. Tried everything I could do to try to make it work.
Even though the x86 boxes check-boxes are cleared (but one remains greyed like blewby says), on the next screen prior to installation I can clearly see that it says (something like) "install components selected - x86 and x64".
I'm using XP Pro x64 on a dual core AMD machine. I was also receiving the "misconfiguration error" message after installing 5.86. Using the separate 64 bit installer solved the problem. One slight bug noted in this separate 64 bit distribution. The Start Menu item for Eraser Verify is set to the wrong executable name. When Windows Explorer starts it's "looking for this item" dialog, its easy enough to hit the "browse" button and select the Erschk.exe executable. After that, everything works correctly.
I'd be happy to help with an 64 bit testing. I normally run XP Pro x64, but I also have machines running Vista x64, Vista 32 bit, and XP Pro 32 bit.
Not sure why but my Vista 64's(my last computer and now this new build) had this problem with most Erasers ...like it purposly misplaces Eraser.dll in wrong spot.
I remember using I believe it was 5.85beta 2 and that one actually installed and worked well (wish I would of kept the exe file)...and also I had the option not have all the Recycle Bin option's.
Also Im not to sure how Eraser 5.84portable works but that works well on both my vista 64 machines. So im faithfully using them...and hoping they work as well as the installed version.
So...How or what can I do to make sure it places Eraser.dll in right location. It was installed but in folder C:\windows but when I start the program it says Eraser.dll is not found or missing component.
Also If I could make a request to have yes/no to recycle bin options again?
Thank You All for your help with my and Vista issues...I do see hqdub has vista 64 and Eraser is working well...so there is hope
I appreciate all the help and see you are making Great improvments with Vista 64bit users, as Hqdub's machine is reported working well with Eraser. ..However my computer is apparently fussy, and I get the same Eraser.dll is missing altho when I do a search it IS installed in the system directory.
I installed your latest 64bit app, after uninstalling, search & delete, regedit and reboot. But I get the same Eraser.dll missing error.
I will be slim on my posts as I do not want to deter any Vista users from using this app. I will keep using Eraser 5.84 portable, and also keep trying to install new releases. I WILL post back when my computer thinks I am 'worthy' of running Eraser :lol: Sidenote...UAC has been disabled the miniute Vista installed.
Thank you ALL for your help...Garrett, Joel & Overwriter
I personally would like you to keep reporting in. The more feedback, positive or negative the better. Development is slow without quality bug reporting so please continue what you are doing to help get Eraser fixed.
