Creative PlayCenter Causing Crashes (and worse!)

  laurie53 15:18 28 Dec 04

I haven't used Creative PlayCenter for a while, and I now find that it causes crashes. This is the first time I've used it since installing SP2, but I've had no other SP2 problems. (About 2 months).

I've tried downloading all the updates from the Creative website, and then got really serious trouble!

The system kept trying to load PlayCenter on startup, then crashed, restarted and just kept on in this loop.

I managed to interrupt it with a "Safe" start and tried a system restore only to find that all restore points had gone, including the precautionary one I always create before a download!

I then tried a repair - I actually have a original XP Home disc, but once again the sytem went into a loop, crashing when it came to "Installing Drivers" and then restarting Setup.

I have had to reformat and repartition and do a full clean installation.

PlayCenter still causes crashes if I try to run it.

Where do I go from here, apart from dumping PlayCenter?

I am using Playcentre v3.01.57 with SP2 no problems, Have you tried uninstalling all Creative Apps and utilities and doing a fresh install from the Creative installation disk

Yep, and tried "last Good Config", and Device Mgr, and all the other good things!
