Well, the good news.. I got my DVArchive to work with Vista. No more ".XML" errors. I have it running with WinDVA, and running that as Administrator.

However, I'm still a bit confused on exactly how to operate WinDVA. At first, I installed it as a service. I'd just right-click on WinDVA, run as Administrator, and DVA would pop up.. smooth sailing. When I'd right-click on the WinDVA system tray icon and click "exit", DVA would close down. No problem. But, only if I left my computer on. If I restarted my computer and tried to run WinDVA, I'd get "Error, Already Running", or I'd get one from DVA saying, "DVA has detected another copy of itself already running". Okay, so this is because I installed it to run as a service, correct? WinDVA already had launched it when I rebooted? I only ask because when I installed it as a service and rebooted my computer, I wouldn't see DVArchive start up on the desktop. But, like I said, if I tried running WinDVA, it would tell me it was already running, or that there were 2 copies detected. Am I just not waiting long enough for WinDVA to launch DVA when I restart my computer? (Did I just answer my own question?) LOL

What is the proper way to shut down DVA when using WinDVA? Do I exit out of DVArchive, or just exit out of WinDVA?? It just seems impossible to get rid of that "2 copies detected already running" message once it gets started.

WinDVA is an interesting app. If you have it running as a service and you try to quit DVArchive, then WinDVA would think something is wrong and try to restart DVArchive.

From the readme file of WinDVA:
First, WinDVA doesn't stop you from closing DVArchive via its "File | Quit" menu or the Windows "Close" button. However, WinDVA tries to detect when this has happened so that it may automatically restart DVArchive.

So, if you want to stop both WinDVA and DVArchive, you have to do the following:

1) open Task Manager and go to the processes tab.

2) stop the WinDVA process

3) stop the javaw.exe process (that's the DVArchive program).

That's how I do it on mine. Please respond to this topic and let us know how it goes for you.
