"Active Metadata reader" message

After upgrading to Windows 7 from Vista Business 64 bit, I get the "Active Metadata reader not working: error message upon booting up the computer.

Any fixes for this??

I have this too, with Vista64 Ultimate SP2 (using Prospect HD 4.2).

First light will only run when I use Admin mode (right click)?

Report to support, as I'm not familiar with that error message. It is possible that you both have your database set up in a path you user privileges don't grant you access (easily a problem for Vista and Win7.)

If you have no First Light color corrections already you could do the following.

--- cut here ---
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

--- cut here ---

save as FixDBPath.reg
double click on this .reg file

If you do have existing color corrections. You will need to open Regedit.exe see where HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\CineForm\ColorProcessing\LUTPath is currently pointing. You can move everything to C:\Users\Public\CineForm\LUTs or change the permissions for the current path.
