  • Reg Problem Started by WirelessMon err msg

    OS: Win Vista Home Premium
    WirelessMon Version: 2.0 build 1011 (evaluation version)

    Description of anomaly:
    I set WirelessMon running continuously starting ~3AM with logging turned on. went to bed. Next morning, my computer was asleep, too (sleep mode). I wake it up by moving the mouse. Everything turned back on except my monitor which remained blank. I power cycled my system to restart. After OS loaded, ran WirelessMon.

    It returned this error message:

    I go into regedit to examine location. This is what I see:

    There is no such entry mentioned by the error message. Which entry needs to reset to zero?

    This error message never appeared before. I downloaded the program yesterday.

    log attached:

    This error message is practically redundant for Vista so it will probably be changed or removed in the next version.

    We've made a change that might help, please try this version There is also some extra debugging added when loading the performance counters so if it doesn't work please run WirelessMon in debug mode and send me the log file.

    There was also a resource leak found in the Vista version so this should be corrected in this version.

      The new version didn't work; I sent the debug log by email. One thing further though. uninstalling and then install\ing didn't make a difference (error box still occurred), but yet it worked fine the very first time it was installed.

        This seems to be a problem with WirelessMon not automatically selecting to run as in elevated administrator mode.

        If you right click on the wirelessmon.exe, choose properties and then click on the Compatibility make sure the "Run this program as administrator" options is checked.
