wrong path
« on: September 19, 2008, 09:38:12 PM »
Just a quick note for Shane and users... the install of CleanMem assumes that Windows is installed on Drive C:
In my case, Windows XP is on Drive D:
It's an easy fix to change the path both in the scheduler and in the registry startup. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
You may want to address this in future release.

Edit: I went ahead and removed the start reg entry. I felt it was pointless to have since I have it using the task scheduler and running every 30 min by default. I have updated the setup file on my site. Still same version just a new setup file.


Thanks for letting me know, I will look into it.

Did you do this with v1.2.1 or v1.2.0? cause in 1.2.1 I changed the scheduler setup to %systemroot%\system32\ which should grab the right drive and path.

But the reg files are set for C:, looks like I will need to make a exe to set those, but come to think of it is it really needed to have start up  in the registry since we are using the the task scheduler? Whats your opinion? Drop the run at windows start up in the reg?

Let me know!

I used  v1.2.0 which I recently downloaded. Didn't realize  v1.2.1 was posted. I agree the startup is probably not needed, the program will run 30 mins. after a reboot in this case.

If you get a chance let me know how the 1.2.1 setup works for you.

Take care

Just installed v1.2.1 Scheduler is OK - now correctly chooses drive D: however, the registry startup is still there and still chooses drive C:
Not a problem really. I can choose to change or delete the entry.

BTW - I did uninstall the old version and checked to be sure the registry entry was indeeed gone B4 I installed the v1.2.1

yeah I updated my setup on my site but the setup on major geeks still has the reg entry. no big deal as you said. Good to see the scheduler is working right though, that's what I cared about the most.
