Launch Icon runs Install

Recommended Posts

Something strange going on..............

I have installed version 4.2.5.1541 as I had this on another machine and it didn't suffer the screen positioning problem.

After a couple of computer restarts if I go back to launch CD Burner it doesn't launch the program but runs the setup install again.

Now looking at the version number it says 4.2.7.1849 - WHY?

I haven't install this. So I have now downloaded the 4.2.7.1849 setup from the website and run this again.

Again after a couple of restarts instead of launching the programs it runs a setup again.

Any help would be great, thank you.

I've had that happen, too. Clicked the shortcut on the desktop & it looked like it reinstalled. That was maybe a week or two ago. Now, whenever I launch, it keeps asking me to select my language before bringing up the options box.

I have a similar issue but I was able to track down the cause in my case. The applicationevent log indicated that when I launch the program, it checks to see if the start menu folder and the desktop icons are in the \Documents and Settings\All Users folder tree:

If the desktop icon and start menu folder aren't where they were by default, the installer runs to place them there. Since I routinely move all of my desktop icons to my roaming profile desktop and all of the start menu items to subfolders, the problem occurs for me. I guess I'm just too obsessed with being organized...LOL. FWIW, some installers allow the user to choose the start menu folder's location and some don't.

In my case, I was able to work around the issue by setting the hidden attribute on the cdburberxp icin on the all users desktop icon and the cdburberxp start menu folder/subitems, then selecting "do not show hidden files and folders" in the folder/view options. The files are still there but no longer visible.

This thread should probably be moved to the bug forum...
