Good Day......Think I found the problem. Please get this zip file
and replace the VideoReDoAutoProcessor6.exe file in your VAP6 runtime folder with the version unpacked from the zip. The zip also includes a cleaned up version of "VAP6profiles.xml" that could (optionally) replace the one in the Profiles subfolder of the runtime folder, although AFAIK the original version is not causing problems. I recommend copying off the file(s) being replaced then deleting them, before copying the new replacements from the zip into the proper location.
Before, and then after, doing this replacement do this test:
Edit the VideoFileManager.xml file in your VAP6 data folder and delete the line starting with "<AdScanProfile>", which is roughly line 16. Then start up VAP6 and without touching the AdScan profile selector (which should say "*Default") run an AdScan process. With the old exe this should induce the failure. With the test replacement exe it should run OK.
Been off the grid for a little while and I am now in the process of upgrading to version 6. I am running into this particular problem but it appears the link to the zip file is no longer valid? Is there an alternative link available?
