AIM 6.5 causes audio loss and WMI corruption

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Jonathan Yaniv- Windows Live Butterfly Expert, Oct 20, 2007.

  1. After installing AIM 6.5, these issues are being reported with users:

    1. Vista Displays a Red X saying that its not connected to a Network even
    though it is.

    2. Connection may say "Connection status: unknown. Server execution failed."

    3. WMI is corrupted

    4. Windows Media Player won't be able to play Mp3s

    5. No sound can be heard from computer

    6. Windows Security Center reports errors

    Only problem I had, was "No sound can be heard from computer"


    To fix the problem:

    go to run type (in elevated mode)then enter this and hit enter



    net localgroup Administrators LocalService /add

    Now, go to Programs and Features, and uninstall AIM 6

    Now reboot

    it fixes the media player problems and the red x but aim corrupted everyones
    wmi


    To fix the WMI is a different story, you will have to do some research on
    that

    Update:

    Here, is how to fix WMI

    open up a notepad and paste this in it

    @echo on
    cd /d c:\temp
    if not exist %windir%\system32\wbem goto TryInstall
    cd /d %windir%\system32\wbem
    net stop winmgmt
    winmgmt /kill
    if exist Rep_bak rd Rep_bak /s /q
    rename Repository Rep_bak
    for %%i in (*.dll) do RegSvr32 -s %%i
    for %%i in (*.exe) do call :FixSrv %%i
    for %%i in (*.mof,*.mfl) do Mofcomp %%i
    net start winmgmt
    goto End

    :FixSrv
    if /I (%1) == (wbemcntl.exe) goto SkipSrv
    if /I (%1) == (wbemtest.exe) goto SkipSrv
    if /I (%1) == (mofcomp.exe) goto SkipSrv
    winmgmt /RegServer

    :SkipSrv
    goto End

    :TryInstall
    if not exist wmicore.exe goto End
    wmicore /s
    net start winmgmt
    :End



    then your going to save that as wmifix.cmd and run it

    if it asks you if you want to stop the services your going to type y

    Microsoft PSS has been contacted about this issue, and is investigating

  2. So if you are having these problems, first try "net localgroup
    Administrators LocalService /add" in elevated mode and remove AIM 6.5, then
    reboot.

    This worked and seemed to have solved my problem. But now, should i undo the
    "net local group Administrators LocalService/add" command? and if so, how?

    Thanks.
