ReCrystallize Pro is installed on Windows Vista. When launching the program, Error 42 is displayed and the program terminates.
The first time the ReCrystallize Pro is started, it writes information to the Windows registry. A standard Windows Vista user account does not have sufficient access to write the required information to the Windows registry.
Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the folder where ReCrystallize Pro is installed. Normally, this will be
Right-click on the ReCrystallizePro.exe file and select "Run as Administrator". This will launch the ReCrystallize Pro software with sufficient access to make the required entries in the Windows registry. This step should only be necessary the first time the ReCrystallize Pro software is launched.
This issue is resolved in ReCrystallize Pro version 11.7 or later.
