    Don't suppose they taken out the damn annoying have you cleaned your filter message have they? or made it configurable.

    Teachers don't care about the filter.

    ***Edit***
    Search for: _D3E0C5A24FE87E42AD00A1E69C8BA925 and drop both rows that this appears in they will be.

    ISReigistryComponent_ActivFilter <---- shouldn't that be ISRegistryComponent_ActivFilter, typo from the programmers

    and a row in the Registry table that is actually called _D3E0C5A24FE87E42AD00A1E69C8BA925

    Ben

    It is still there but you can run the nofilt.exe from the cd.

    it is in \support\promethean utilities\

    Activ is what all our products are prefixed with, not Active

    Activstudio, Activdriver, Activboard.

    Hi Dan,

    Sorry that was my typo there what I was really referring to was the misspelling of registry.

    I'd rather have the msi not install the filter warning as per my workaround rather than have to run another utility.

    Re: Promethean Activdriver 4 now on web

    We have version 3 installed on our staff laptops. Can i just deploy V4 via GPO and sent it out to the laptops?

    Does it upgrade or do a new install? Have you tested this senario?

    Not having looked at the nofilt.exe yet, can this be deployed?

    Re: Promethean Activdriver 4 now on web

    tosca: I was thinking the same thing as it would be nice to just allocate it to the staff laptop ou then not have to worry about installing it on each new laptop.

    I'll test it tomorrow if I get chance.

    Dan, what if you have not got the CD to run the nofilt.exe command, is avalable as part of the download / for download from your site, and does it work with older V3 drivers or just the V4 as I have actually got some stable boards now thanks to a good set of V3 drivers and the board firmware updates, so touch wood all is fairly good now, but I would like to banish the filter warning from the V3 if possible.

    There are several manual things you need to uninstall driver 2/3

    You can do it manually on the machine or.

    1. Remove the activdrvservice service from services
    2. Remove the contents of C:\program files\activ software\activdriver\
    3. Remove the key
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run \Activcontrol
    and
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run \Activfilter
    4. Remove Activdrv.sys and Activdrv_usb.sys from
    c:\windows\system32\drivers.

    I think you will have to do the above without the board attached and do a reboot to get rid of the service.

    Thats the driver, Im not sure about the installshield stuff as that gets everywhere.

    John: Just remove the reg entry from the run section that loads the ActivFilter.exe

    Re: Promethean Activdriver 4 now on web

    Well if you do that you really need to delete the reg entry as otherwise it will be trying to load a non existent program, so you may as well just delete the reg entry.

    Ok just tried to allocate the new driver to a machine that has the old one installed and it failed so yes you do need to remove the old one first.

    Cheers for that Dan, much appreciated, it will save many many phone calls about the projector needs cleaning, when I only cleaned it 20 seconds ago!
