    Hi there. AnyDVD was working fine ( I just downloaded and installed the latest version ( but recently whenever I boot, I get the error message dialog box stating: INITIALISE_dynamic() failed! Obviously AnyDVD doesn't load into my system tray, but even if I double click the AnyDVD icon it will not load too into my system tray.
    Any idea?
    Same problem with the clonedvd latest version (
    My OS is vista Home premium.
    I uninstalled and reinstalled softwares but nothing has changed.
    Any help is appreciate.
    Question: i do not uninstall the previous version when an update is available. Right?
    Thanks for your support.

    It's one of these beloved Vista issues again...
    We'll send out a fix soon.
    Until then: the easiest way to get around it in the meantime is to deactivate UAC:
    run msconfig->Tools, then click on the appropriate entry.

    If you don't want to deactivate UAC, you can work around the problem for a Windows session by rightklicking on anydvd and choosing "run as administrator". That should work a well.

    I just upgraded my Vista 32 Ultimate installed AnyDVD HD from to and I'm getting exactly the same error message dialog box at startup, then AnyDVD fails toload.

    Appears that there is a bug in the new version that means it will no longer work on my Vista install.

    NB: I tried it on my Windows XP partition (same PC), and it works fine, so looks like a Vista issue!

    1. Disable User Account Control in Vista.

    2. Run Vista as Administrator.

    3. Try reinstalling

    UAC "wins" again. Preventing that evil bad software from running. LOL! :)

    Running Vista32 here with UAC permanently off and I have no issues.

    It would be nice if people would read a little and then post in the appropriate thread instead of opening new ones on the "exact same" subject....:(

    What are you new to forums or something? That's just not how things are done. you need at least 15 threads on the exact same problem because YOUR problem MAY be unique. :D ROFLMAO!

    Your right! We probably need at least twenty+ to qualify.:D I hope it will be a long time before I have to migrate to that wonderful Vista OS, since people are having so much fun with it.....:D:D

    Vista's interface isn't bad. I rather like it. The driver problem is what irritates me. However, the beta patches that were leaked yesterday have helped Vista stability IMMENSELY. So, things are improving. But, I still won't recommend it to people.

    Still having problems....

    Have the same problem.
    Removed AnyDVD version 6166 and reinstalled version 6165.

    But I still get the error initialise-dynamic() failed!, when starting up my computer.

    I am crying!

    what patches??? where can i get them?!?

    They're not out officially. As I said, they were leaked and still considered beta. Since I'm a developer, that kind of thing doesn't scare me. :) In any case, the link was pulled by MS as you can imagine. Check to see if any new links to it pop up. Otherwise wait the 2 weeks until the official release is put up on Windows Update. They'll be pushed on the next "patch Tuesday."

    Initialise_dynamic() failed

    I have the same problem as dadobit66 and others regarding initialise_dynamic() failed! message from with Vista HP. Same results with uninstalling and reinstalling. Running installation as administrator seems to work for a single session only; when rebooting or coming out of sleep mode the error message returns. was working fine with Vista HP and I didn't specifically choose to run that installation "as administrator."

    Would it be best to reinstall until the fix is developed for
