    I recently tried linkscanner lite
    http://www.explabs.com/products/lslite.asp
    And on three occasions that i tried to install it looknstop said it had encountered a problem and would shut down.Drwatson error log was created showing looknstop access violation error.It would install with looknstop chutdown and seemed to work ok until trying to uninstall linkscanner produced the same result with looknstop crashing.This happened on my w2000 pro OS.Is anyone else having problems with linkscanner lite and looknstop?.

    Hi,

    Could you send me a DrWatson log and tell me which version of Look 'n' Stop you are using, I will have a look.

    Thanks,

    Frederic

    The same has happened to me as well.
    Only it was LinkScanner Pro not lite but the same result.
    After learning of this I would shut down LNS whenever installing or uninstalling LSP.
    I no longer have either installed at the moment so not a problem here.
    Hopefully Frederic can find a solution for you.(and myself if i install both again)

    Mmmm it is possible that when i installed linkscanner that i choose to try the pro trial version option in the installer which then reverts back to the lite.

    Thanks for the file.
    The problem has been fixed in the 2.06p1 version of Look 'n' Stop.

    It is the following item from the history/change log section:

    When getting the description/comments from the resources of an executable file, a crash could occur if the description was bigger than expected

    The same problem occured with another application sometime ago.

    Here, the description in LinkScannerLiteSetup_2_7_0_0105_6.exe resources is "LinkScanner Installation_____________________________________
    ____________________________________________________________
    ____________________________________________________________
    ____________________________________________________________
    ___________________" o_O
    (I've replaced " " with "_")

    Hi,

    You have to download it from the forum.
