Registry Has Been Corrupted

Savant has detected an error in its registry entries. Since Savant cannot load its start up information, it shuts down.

This error is usually caused by the volatility of the Windows registry, which on rare occasions loses information. Savant is highly dependent upon accurate registry information.

In older versions of Savant, it was recommended that the server be uninstalled and then reinstalled, since the installation process wiped the old registry entries entirely. The newer versions of Savant are designed to import registry data, so the corrupted registry entries will not be wiped. Instead, perform the following procedure:

  1. Uninstall Savant.
  2. Run the regedit command from the Run option of the Windows Start menu.
  3. Locate the registry path \\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\DAEMONS\Savant and delete it from the registry.
  4. Re-install Savant.
Let me stress that this should only happen on extremely rare occasions due to some improved code - it is much less likely to happen than with older versions of Savant. If it does happen, please file a support request explaining exactly what steps you were performing when the error occurred so any possible issues can be resolved.
