Forums -> VideoSaver -> Can't save playlist
Michael Hampton   2004-11-30 02:24
Just installed Videosaver to try it out, but I it won't let me save the playlist. I've tried in my documents directory, as well as other places. Keep getting this error:

Couldn't save the playlist. If this problem persists, go to Add/Remove Programs and repair VideoSaver.

I've installed and re-installed and still the same problem. I am an administrator on this machine.

Any ideas?

This could happen if one of the VideoSaver components hasn't been properly registered during installation.

Please run regedit.exe and check if the following registry key exists:


If it doesn't exist, try repairing or reinstalling VideoSaver again.

If the key exists, select it, then choose File\Export from the menu and save it to a file. Please e-mail the .reg file to, or post the contents here.

Found that key down in

Saved that section, edited it and reimported where you said it should be. Looks like it's working now.

I am encountering the same problem with Windows Vista Ultimate. However, the registry keys do appear to be present.

Anyone else having this issue?

Editing the playlist may crash VideoSaver on Vista, I'm going to address this in a future update.

Update: I just tested with the final version of Vista, this is no longer an issue.

Jeff, have you already tried repairing the VideoSaver installation? You can do this via Control Panel > Programs and Features, select VideoSaver, then click on Repair.

Yes, this is still an issue. I installed the patch, then tried the repair and reinstalled the patch. Both display an error when trying to save to my C:\Users\...\Documents folder.

I have also reverified that the registry settings are in both locations listed in this forum.

I have also verified that I am an administrator on my own machine.

Cants save playlists in Vista home premium. I have repaired and re installed a couple times. Registry entry is in the place indicated by the forum. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

@="Realtime Soft VideoPlayer Playlist"

@="C:\\Program Files\\VideoSaver\\VideoPlayer.dll"

What's the error message you get?

I'm not sure why you would get this error, the registry data looks okay, but it might be worth a try to install VideoSaver for all users instead of only the current user.

To do this, first uninstall VideoSaver, then open a command prompt and run the following command:

msiexec /i <msifile> ALLUSERS=1

For example: msiexec /i C:\Temp\VideoSaver31.msi ALLUSERS=1

I too was having the same problem IE Can't save followed by a crash ( I'm using Vista Home Ult.)

Followed the steps in the previous post

msiexec /i C:\Temp\VideoSaver31.msi ALLUSERS=1"

and then ran the vista patch.

All is well now, Looks good
