Installation Problems

Installing Phidget 2.1.5 on the new laptop isn't going well. I can't get stuff to work that worked before. After restarting the computer I get this warning and Phidgets is no more...

Unexpected Exception, Exiting:
Aangevraagde registertoegang is niet toegestaan
(requested register is not allowed),
bij System.ThrowHelper.ThrowSecurityException(ExceptionResourceresource)
bij Microsoft.Win32.RegisterKey.OpenSubKey (String name, Boolean writable)
bij phidget21Manager.ServiceController2.set_ServiceStart(ServiceStart value)
bij phidget21Manager.Form1RemoteUpdateFunc2()

I'm using an updated Vista and Flash AS3 and have already tried it without the Firewall

Anyone? Thanks!

It looks like you are running under a limited user account? Or perhaps Vista UAC is getting in your way. You can start the phidget webservice from the Windows Services control panel if needed.

Thanks Patrick, turning off Vista UAC seems to take care of the problem.
Still, some other issues remain: things I had made that worked before don't work now.

In Output:
1046: Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant: PhidgetErrorEvent.
1046: Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant: PhidgetEvent.
1046: Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant: PhidgetDataEvent.

Using the templates offered by Phidget these error-message don't turn up so their must be something wrong in my code. But how do I find out where? It worked before; are there perhaps any other changes with Vista or in Phidget software?

do you import*; ?

Yes. But then, if I didn't it wouldn't run on my old laptop.
I think I will have to reverse engineer from the template back to what I had made. It isn't very complex. Just some testing with I/O switches.

Hmmm i am getting a very similar error on a thing that i built myself:

"1046: Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant: PhidgetEncoder."

I checked the location of the Flash-Phidget files, but that seems to be correct.
But if i run one of the example files (PhidgetEncoder) than i works without any problems.

Pretty wierd!

Somebody has a clue?
I am running on Windows XP 32bit, with 3 PhidgetEncoders.
