    Is anyone else having trouble running G6 U-Disk Manager under Windows Vista? Or, is anybody successfully running G6 U-Disk on Vista? Mine crashes right after selecting the drive of my G6 Lite. [​IMG]

    I've never had a problem with it on Vista. I've been using the final as my main OS for weeks.

    I think it depends on what version of Vista you are using. When I was running the Beta 2 version of Vista the same thing happened on my computer but since the RC1 beta this issue seems to have gone away. If you are running version RC1 or better then it may be hardware related. When you install programs make sure you right click and choose 'run as administrator' to assure you have administrator rights during the install. This may or may not help.

    Good luck.

    I'm having issues with the U-Disk Manager as well. I'm running Vista Ultimate Retail and all it does is allow me to select my drive and then it craps out on me.

    I'm attempting to downgrade the U-Disk manager to 4.6c to see if that works.

    EDIT: 4.6c craps out too.

    This is the info vista dumps out as to what is causing the issue... not sure if anyone can decypher it.

    Code:
    Problem signature:
     Problem Event Name:ÂÂÂÂAPPCRASH
     Application Name:ÂÂÂÂG6 U-DISK Manager.exe
     Application Version:ÂÂÂÂ1.0.0.1
     Application Timestamp:ÂÂÂÂ455bbeff
     Fault Module Name:ÂÂÂÂStackHash_e403
     Fault Module Version:ÂÂÂÂ6.0.6000.16386
     Fault Module Timestamp:ÂÂÂÂ4549bdc9
     Exception Code:ÂÂÂÂc0000374
     Exception Offset:ÂÂÂÂ000af1c9
     OS Version:ÂÂÂÂ6.0.6000.2.0.0.256.1
     Locale ID:ÂÂÂÂ1033
     Additional Information 1:ÂÂÂÂe403
     Additional Information 2:ÂÂÂÂd3172f4bb50b4600b4629961ea1e2c49
     Additional Information 3:ÂÂÂÂ9ef7
     Additional Information 4:ÂÂÂÂ85987dd06325dcf4265d1ce92f5ccc86
    Edit #2: None of the Compatability modes work, nor do the options below the compatability. Some won't let me choose the drive, while others let me before it dies. I thought maybe it was an issue with the program selecting a USB drive, but it still craps out when selecting a HDD.

    The compatibility changes are having no effect.

    I've uninstalled and re-installed the software a number of times, and have cleared the directory every time of all left over files each time. The only thing left that I can think of is that the User Account control (Allow/Deny popups) is currently off, although I don't imagine that actually affects anything.

    Hello
    I also had problems with u-disk crashing on me and after a week of sniffing i discovered a workaround for me, but this may also serve others. here it goes: when you start g6 manager select first another drive, as to be removable, like an Sd Card reader or such, dvd drives and hard disk dont work, then the g6 it will give an error saying that there is no drive, then select the g6 and the program works

    best regards [​IMG]

    Thanks for the solution!!!!! And, here's another alternative for those who doesn't own a Card Reader:

    1. Start G6 U-Disk Manager and Double Click on "Floppy Disk Drive (A:)", it'll ask you to "Insert A Disk"
    Note: Highlighting (A:), and click OK won't work.

    2. Click Cancel then choose the G6 Drive and the Program should appear [​IMG])))))
