you do know that for HD-DVD you either need special version of PowerDVD that comes with some HD-DVD drives or PowerDVD Ultra
Yep, I'm using PowerDVD Ultra 7.3... I've already watched Tokyo drift, Batman Begins and Riddick in HD using it... but since installing visual studio and rebooting, I can't watch anything without it crashing using my usual account. Works fine using the default administrator account.

ok, some progress. The crash is caused by a process called richvideo.exe which is running in my user account, but not the administrator account. Once I kill it, everything runs fine... but strange that its a part of the powerdvd software yet I have to kill it to use powerdvd...

If that's a service you can change the account it runs as from "Computer Management."

I don't recall Visual Studio creating any other user accounts, but maybe I didn't pay enough attention. My guess would be that installing .Net messed with the .NET framework which would cause those issues.

My question is what version of VS did you install and what OS? There are know issues with Vista and VS 2003. VS 2007 goes on Vista just fine.
