    Interesting you thought it worked in the past on Win7-64 - because I tried it recently in XP and it crashes on that OS too! Definately used to work in XP so I wonder what's happened? Paging Carpervideo...

    I have win 7 now so I can try it there - it may not be OS specific - sometime real bugs occur too. Can you post the log or screen shot of it failing?

    I just cleared my entire gbpvr database and reloaded with vidImport with no issues on windows 7.

    Try the latest version I uploaded - I hadn't release 1.32 because it was minor fixes with certain filenames and characters but it may help. Barring that you may want to make it run as administrator (or set pvrx2.exe to run as admin since it calls that at the end.

    Sorry for not replying sooner. I downloaded 1.32 but it still crashes. As I am on Win7-64 GBPVR is installed in C:Program files (X86)
    It is set to run as administrator, as is PVRX2. This is a what the DOS screen returns before the 'ConsoleApplication1 has stopped working' message;

    The issue is it can't find the GBPVR key with the install directory in the registry -
    vidImport.exe version 1.32
    GBPVR key / install directory not found
    Recursing directory/file: j:
    This causes it to try to run pvxr2 from a non-existent directory. I

    Executing \pvrx2 -import:"videos.xml"
    Perhaps on a 64 bit machine the key is different or the key mechanism I use does not work, I suspect it is the first since it works on my win7 machine. Can you reply with the key and value with the gbpvr install directory. vidImport is looking for Local Machine\SOFTWARE\\Devnz\\GBPVR InstallDir.

    If we can't fix it that way I can always add a switch asking for the gbpvr directory.

    Thank you for looking at this.
    There is no Local Machine\software\Devnz. But there is:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-21-2256697014-1890493819-263635733-1999\Components\A973544C9345EE147B9D930E254050A7]
    "60A48540AD3EF8A41A9A9EE1FFB58692"="02:\\SOFTWARE\ \devnz\\GBPVR InstallDir"
    &
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\devnz]
    "GBPVR InstallDir"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Devnz\\GBPVR\\"
    "LastKnownVersionInUse"="GB-PVR v1.4.7"
    So probably this last one is the correct one in 64-bit?

    Looks like that is the issue I will get a new version out soon,

    From MSDN
    To prevent 32-bit registry settings from overwriting the 64-bit registry settings, computers that are running an x64-based version of Windows store the settings for 32-bit programs in a new branch in the registry. Users do not notice any changes during program installation. The registry redirection process enables program installations and program configuration settings to access the correct registry sub key without user intervention.

    32-bit programs and 64-bit programs that are running on an x64-based version of Windows operate in different modes and use the following sections in the registry:

    * Native mode 64-bit programs run in Native mode and access keys and values that are stored in the following registry sub key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software
    * 32-bit programs run in WOW64 mode and access keys and values that are stored in the following registry sub key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432node
