I have admin rights to all folders (in fact I made full access to these folders to "Everyone"). I start the executables as Administrator.
the message I get says "switchfiles stopped working" and it quits, but the backup continues.
edit: so I switched the file manually, I still get the "switchfiles stopped working" message. Zune now contains the ZuneWMU.dll from 4.7 and the backup continues like before after closing the error message. The size of the backup corresponds to the space taken on the phone.
edit2: I am not sure what regedit changes your tool makes but I would like to see if they got stuck or changed back. Can you tell me what they are (maybe best if you send the reg file to make the changes by hand for 4.7 and 4.8).
Zune Client 4.8 didn't care with all this so far.
edit3: I just tried to run the switchfiles.exe with admin rights and it just crashes with the above error message. Ran it from the dos admin cmd prompt comes up with this message:
Unhandled Exception:System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at SwitchFiles.SwitchFiles.Main(). I guess I have to use it as switchfiles <path/filename> <newpath/filename>.
switchfiles.exe spits out a txt file paths.txt when it crashes (the text file disappears after closing the error). the paths.txt file contains the following:
Those are the paths I set in your tool when I started it.
I am not seeing any changes in the registry Zune tree (HKLM or HKCU)
so altogether it can't make changes but still makes a full backup? confused...I haven't dared to run a restore yet...
