    ndroid service will not start

    Hi,
    Fresh install today. I'm getting an error starting the service. It terminates unexpectedly.

    ndroidservice.log shows:

    System OS is Windows 7, 32 bit. Installed .net 4 for the first time today. Ran windows updates and installed the .net 4 updates only. Apart from that the system doesn't get updated much and is out of date - no SP1.

    Any help appreciated. Looks like a great app

    I'd need to see more log data specifically from nDroidServiceHelper.log - it looks like it's failing at the point when it's trying to generate a list of your npvr TV channels. If you just zip and attach all the nDroid logs, I'll take a look.

    Cheers,
    Brian

    The file "SQLite.Interop.dll" is in "C:\Program Files\Beetec Services\nDroid Service\" plain as day. When I look at its properties, there is no "unblock" button.

    OK, thanks. Looking at the logs I haven't got an immediate answer - this is an odd one. I'll get back to you ASAP.

    Awesome. I'll be up for another 2 hours or so if you want me to test it tonight.

    I'm happy to open up remote access to my system for you to have a poke around if you like.

    I don't really know what I'm doing here, but I tried to register the dll to see if that was the problem. The error I got seems consistent with the problem in the logs:

    The SQLite.Interop.dll should be loaded dynamically so doesn't need to be registered.

    Try installing the VC++ redistributable files from the following link and see if that fixes things.

    Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86)

    Great, that got the service to start. My system had VC++ 2008 only, not 2010. Working now!

    Good to know. Thanks for the confirmation.
