Hi!

I have following trouble - I have access to the program only from account which I use for install program. When I change account to my brothers account or my moms(with admins privillages or not - it doesnt matter) and run the program I get this error:

Failed to initialize product. Please reinstalling.

Reinstalling doesnt solve my problem. In previous version, while I was installing program I could choose if product should be installed for all users or only for that user who installing the program, maybe its something to do with my trouble? Because since 1.8 I cant choose it.

My OS: Windows 7 Professional x64 with SP1

Regards,
Peter

New installer does not allow to choose if it's installed either for one or all users. You have to install it on every user profile.

I just installed Splash Lite on one of my Windows boxes and got the same error. After some googling I stumbled upon this thread and the official "advice" given. With respect, this is such cr*p it drove me wild enough to register with this forum to leave a comment here. The only sane way to run a Windows family computer - and I don't give a monkey what M$ thinks - is to install ONE admin account and make everyone else a LIMITED user. After that, turn off UA for some peace and quiet. I have been running our family computers like this for years, going back to XP. The "resolution" offered DOES NOT work on such a configuration because - Hurrah! - the ordinary users have no privileges to install anything, Splash included. The only way I could implement this suggestion is by giving admin privileges to every user, installing Splash (on accounts for which I don't necessarily possess the passwords) and then revoke these privileges after. INSANE !!

I shall be uninstalling Splash now in the expectation that I will find another video player with a more sensible attitude to multiple users. I know this has become a PITA on Win7 coz M$ make it hard for installers to bend file associations. But the answer cannot be the one provided here.

PS: When I downloaded Splash from the official Download site, my AVG anti-virus PUKED BIG TIME. Some virus was apparently pulled down the pipe. I quarantined it and it evidently had nothing to do with Splash because that came down after and worked fine (-ish - see above). I am guessing that some commercial junk was prefixed that was infected. Very clever (not).
