Fraps not starting

September 17, 2007 at 08:46:26
Specs: Windows XP Pro, 1.34GHz/512Mb
I had the trial version of Fraps on my computer, and then I decided to buy the full version of it. I removed the trial version and installed the full version, but it doesn't start at all. I googled and found lots of "answers" and "solutions", from which none worked. Some of them required a program called Trial-Reset, but every copy of the program I found and downloaded had a Trojan in it, and they didn't even work.
I tried removing all Fraps files and keys from the registry, rebooted and reinstalled Fraps, but no help. I tried Regmon and I got Fraps to start once, but after that (even with Regmon running) it didn't start anymore.
What can I do? Where can I get a REAL working version of Trial-Reset without viruses?

If you bought a full version of a program why not use the tech support for that program to sort out your problems.

If it is simply a matter of a trial version of thier software, wouldn't you think to go there for the trial version.

What you may want to do is D/L regcleaner:
and remove all instances of the trial software.
Then reinstall the software in a NEW folder and see if that works.

But like response 1 said....why not call their tech support....that is what you pay for when you buy their software.

Some HELP in posting on Cnet plus free progs and instructions Glad to Help!

Thanks, I sent e-mail to their tech support, but I thought I'd post here anyway, to see which one responds quicker. I really need this program to work.
I tried the RegCleaner, but I found only few things that belonged to Fraps, with CCleaner I found many and deleted them all.
I installed Fraps again in another folder, it still doesn't start. :(

OK, there is a registry cleaner that was written by the same person that wrote Regcleaner. It is called JVPowertools ver195. Find it at the link below. That program went commercial but the last freeware version is still available for download. However, you need to be very careful with it.

When you first run it there will be a list of entries. Some marked green and some marked red. The green entries are USUALLY safe to remove. However, the program hasn't been updated for about 2 yrs. That means it is possible to remove entries that are usefull and/ or necessary. What I suggest you do is run this program and then pick and choose what to delete. If you are sure the entry relates to the software that you need to remove then remove it. I use this program occasionally and usually it is OK. I have two programs that it does want to cripple. Run at you own risk.

Hy Lightforce , Mr Beepa the guy that wrote it
is an idiot. He wrote it so that no reg cleaner can clean it. I tried crap cleaner because Mr Beepa wrote a lot of crap
Afer I used crap cleaner to remove the registry keys left behind by his fraps trial
program , the new and full version still would not start because there was still crap left behind from the trial.
