      Just use his .exe file it works fine.

      For anyone else having .net problems, I found that installing the Service Packs for 1.1 and 2.0 were essential (on a clean Vista system)

      For those with the Media Player problem, I found that I got error messages when playing files, but found that clicking ok through them (up to 3 identical) opened the video in a window behind the main Anytime window and it played.

      All we need now is another Anytime update just to keep us on our toes...

      Re: sky anytime requires that your computer is running windows xp

      Hi - Just wanted to say thanks for this. I'm going to DL it now and have a play and if I come accross any problems I'll post here. I'm tempted to send a mail basically how can they not support Vista. I mean apart from the iPhone theres been nothing else in the world coming thats had this much publicity. I also find it hard for a company to claime its on the edge of all the new technology not to have Vista proofed this along time ago.

      Hay hum - once again thanks

      Running Vista Home Premium Virgin 8M broadband

      Downloaded the skyanytme.exe, the DRM Update and the .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable Package. Did all the registration bits.

      It all works, I think, but only if I open as administrator. I can live with that!

      Thanks for all the info.

      Downloading now - slow init!

      edit

      All works OK.

      Just have to ignore all the pop ups that say it's broke, because it isn't! Just click OK


      2nd edit

      Well, everything works like it should, downloaded 1 movie, which plays OK.

      The downside is, that hidden in there is KService which is a peer to peer package and boy does it eat up the bandwidth!

      Downloads were running slower than dial up! With an Intel Core2 Duo processor, I didn't expect that!

      Now the KService cannot be uninstalled or deleted by normal methods, you have to use Kclean.exe

      Info here CastleCops® KService KService.exe Click on 'READ THE INSTRUCTIONS'

      First run the skyanytime package again, to uninstall skyanytime. Shut down all other programs and then run Kclean. The instructions,which you will have printed out will say click select all, but I found that this did not work and require numerous restarts, which still don't work. But running Kclean and checking only one box and OK and then repeating this for each box, does work. So that's 14 times but still quicker than all the restarts.

      Sky Anytime on my PC was fun and I've learned loads, but it's not worth the hassle and slow running. So, thank you for the info, but it's goodbye from me.

      Re: sky anytime requires that your computer is running windows xp

      I am reading this thread with interest, but I am having problems.

      I have Windows Vista 32-bit and a Sky subscription for movies and sport.

      I originally downloaded the Sky Anytime package from the Sky website and ran it, but it halted installation halfway through. That led me to this forum.

      After reading, I downloaded the .NET framework 1.1, then the service pack for that, the DRM updates and then the Sky Anytime redone exe file, and installed them in that order.

      However, I keep getting a "there has been an unexpected error" box come up, and that's as far as it goes, no matter if I run it as an administrator or not.

      Any ideas how I can get it to work?

      Re: sky anytime requires that your computer is running windows xp

      I have been trying the above solution but when I install uniextract even as administrator I get this error message 'HKEY_CLASS_ROOT\chm.file\shell\uniextract

      RegCreateKeyEx failed; code 5
      Access is denied

      I have changed the permissions in the registry editor so every user has full access but I'm still getting the same message - can any one help please

      In a Gordon Ramset stylee;

      Install .net 1.1
      DRM upsdate
      AnytimeInstall.exe (the 'fixed' one)

      Anytime working on Vista - DONE


      Dale

      PS OK, OK, so I have to run this as Adminstrator....

      Re: sky anytime requires that your computer is running windows xp

      Sorry, Having read this thread again and again I'm still VERY, VERY confused and more confused than when I first started

      I have Vista 32 bit fully updated with any recommended Windows Updates.

      I have a full Sky TV subscription - I have not yet requested the Anytime download though I've read the website to death. I've done absolutely nothing other than that.

      It's not clear to me whether FurryPototoes amended post on Page 1 is the full installation fix so could someone PLEASE advise step by step instructions for a complete and utter idiot

      Or confirm whether the post on Page 1 is the FINAL instructions for getting this working.

      Apols for my doofusishnessnessnessnessness.
