Blue screen after anydvd install...

    Hi all,

    I am a total newbie to anydvd, and to say the truth, I bought it before testing it :)
    I have downloaded the latest anydvd HD and installed it on my pc. My pc runs vista 64 ultimate or a raid-1 (mirroring) partition on a board using the new X38 chipset. (The board is GA-X38-DQ6 -
    The cpu is an 6700 on 4GB ram.

    I think that anydvd is somehow incompatible with my raid-1 configuration. I installed anydvd, rebooted, and installed the license. After that, I kept getting STOP errors (blue screens) and the raid was degraded.

    I rebooted several times, but only the boots to safe mode where successful. As a last attempt, I booted into safe mode and disabled anydvd from running during startup (by editing the registry), and vista booted normally.

    I have read most of the sticky posts, and I am not running any software that is incompatible with anydvd. Any hints on how should I proceed?
    Is there a known problem with raid-1 configurations using the intel chipsets?
    Also, my dvd drive is a NEC AD 7173S (sata) plugged also on the intel chipset (where the two drives of the raid-1 and another disk not participating in a raid configuration are plugged).

    Am I the only one with this problem? :confused:

    I am willing to think that the raid configuration is the issue but not 100% sure on that. I run anydvd hd on Vista Ultimate 64 as well without the use of raid with no issues.

    You could try to run AnyDVD in "SafeMode" (AnyDVD Settings->Program Settings)

    I have backed up everything in my pc, and then started again anydvd. Up to now I had no STOPs, crashes or raid degradation. It seems that my vista 64 finally accepted the program :) I will try to use it for a while to see if it will remain this way...
