Edcast Standalone unexpectedly quits on one workstation even in the face of reinstall


Recommended Posts

I have a Windows XP SP3 installation that is running on some fairly old hardware at a remote radio station. The CPU is a 1.29GHz AMD Duron processor and there is only 384MB of RAM in it (!). The specific vendor and model is unknown by me at this time as I only have remote access to it.

 

I use Edcast Standalone 3.33 to stream to IceCast2. Edcast has never been able to open on this hardware. There was an ancient installation of XP on the box, and when Edcast was installed, opening it would cause a few second pause, before an error message would pop up saying the following:

So after some sleuthing around, I just reinstalled XP SP3 from scratch. Success? No. With a fresh install of XP SP3, and using the latest Edcast 3.37 and I still get the exact same problem.

 

I've never experienced this kind of behavior from Edcast before. I'm at a loss and grasping for straws. Anyone have ideas?

Try updating to Altacast a newer version of edcast http://djgarybaldy.co.uk/?p=490 It works Fine as long as you have the C++ Visual basic files installed. Which you can get from the microsoft website http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=5555

Why thank you very much. I wish the various Oddsock mutations were easier to find - it seems like every week I'm finding a new variant of some tool that I didn't know was pushed along. Sigh.
