install straight after reboot is a hint :)

I have the same problem....initially tried installing just the latest beta...then uninstalled the main program and then tried to reinstall. During main program install, got "error opening file for writing: c:/windows/system32/vobsub.dll."

I tried rebooting and trying again, but got the same error.

Either:

a) Uninstall your current version of VobSub before installing AutoGK.

OR

b) Don't check VobSub to be installed when installing AutoGK.

Since you are getting this error even after immediately rebooting, some process which auto-loads on start-up is holding onto this DLL.

I uninstalled vobsub and xvid, and the install worked. Thanks!

btw, this is the first time I've had a problem like this. I wonder if there's something wrong with the install program.

Why did you have to uninstall XviD? Your contention was only with vobsub.dll, right?Originally posted by et415

You had -some- process using the DLL during the install, so the installer was not able to overwrite the DLL with the current version.

Anyway, glad it worked for you.

After getting the vobsub error and pressing ignore, then the same message came up with xvid.

I had just finished using DVD decrypter which may have been causing the error (never did before...I've upgraded several times)...and even after a reboot, the error message persisted, so I'm not sure what was going on. But it's working now (better than ever), so I'm content.
