PC User Ripping & Burning Toolbox 2009 – SP2 update released
Having discussed the problems regarding Windows Vista and its security features, I’ve completed work on this new Service Pack 2 release and it’s now available.
First, you must install the original Ripping & Burning Toolbox 2009 file from the May 2009 issue cover disc of PC User.
Next, download the new Service Pack 2 Update here, launch it by right-clicking on the install file and choosing “Run as Administrator” and install it into your system.
What it does is over-write the original application executable file but you must choose the “Run as Administrator” option, otherwise it won’t install.
Once complete, run the tool and crossed-fingers, the app should now come up and show you the list of drives in your system. It should now read Build 401.
This new SP2 update supersedes SP1. It also creates a new folder in your C:\ProgramData folder called “Australian PC User” and a sub-folder there called “RBT2009″, which is now the working folder for Ripping & Burning Toolbox 2009.
If you have any problems, I don’t want to know about it!
Only kidding – just leave comments (good or bad) below so I know if this actually works for everyone else.
I’ve tested this SP2 with Vista’s User Account Control (yuk!) switched on and was able to rip an audio CD as well as create a DVD movie disc. So it’s working for me. The original version caused a nilobjectexception error so I think this could be the fix.
For more details on how Vista stuffs things up for RBT2009, read here.
