From the list I use:

Foxy_DVDShrink_3.2.0.15_Addon_v1.1.cab
Kels_AudioShellExt_addon_v1.2.CAB
MrsP_DAMN_NFO_Viewer_Addon_v2.10.0032.cab
MrsP_FreshFiles_Finder_Addon_v1.1.0.cab
MrsP_RegTweaker_CPL_Addon_v1.8.1.110b.cab

I suppose that narrows it down to the following:
Kels_AudioShellExt_addon_v1.2.CAB
MrsP_RegTweaker_CPL_Addon_v1.8.1.110b.cab

But then again who knows it might be something totally different.

Ryans update pack

my codec pack

One more thing, although i dont use Kels_AudioShellExt_addon_v1.2.CAB
I did install those same files through my own addon. Something screwed up with my current install, these files were placed in the proper location, but did'nt get reg'd. This may have been the source of the error because i seem to be rid of it ...

As yourself, this error has plaqued me for months. I am hoping i have finally sidestepped it.

Well i'm several days now, no error.

I'm convinced this file Kels_AudioShellExt_addon_v1.2.CAB caused it.
although i didnt use Kels addon, i did use the exact same files.

There is a newer version of this available, but it fails to regsvr32 !!

I know it got lost in time but I did post this problem/solution to kel AGES ago when I wasn't know at all! I guess he just threw it out as a noob (builder problem). or perhaps an ID 10 T error. :D

Kels_AudioShellExt_addon_v1.2.CAB

I had this bug for a while and I KNOW now that all explorer crashes are caused either by a startup running application or usually a SHELLEX!!!
DRIVERS usually cause freezes and BSOD but I've never had a driver crash explorer. . . THE shell extentions that they include HAVE DONE tho!!
including some versions of the systray NVidia panels

the above addon was a cool feature but I'll never be comfitable using my computer with random explorer crashes (I loose my opened windows and then forget things I was doing etc)!

I still have and use the AudioShell Extensions addon 1.1 without any problems......so my best guess would be for anyone wanting to use it to revert to the older version.

If nobody else has it, I'll be happy to post it up somewhere if anyone want's to verify it as a problem free version for them.

I think we have finally nailed the culprit --> 'Kels_AudioShellExt_addon_v1.2.CAB'

Code: Select all

Foxy_DVDShrink_3.2.0.15_Addon_v1.1.cab 
Kels_AudioShellExt_addon_v1.2.CAB 
MrsP_DAMN_NFO_Viewer_Addon_v2.10.0032.cab 
MrsP_FreshFiles_Finder_Addon_v1.1.0.cab 
MrsP_RegTweaker_CPL_Addon_v1.8.1.110b.cab
Out of the preceding list, I included all addons and excluded just 'Kels_AudioShellExt_addon_v1.2.CAB' from my latest unattended DVD and guess what?

NO MORE ERRORS. HALLELUIAH :)

It has been over 24 hrs now, over 16 hrs of actual PC usage, and the error has not appeared even a single time. Thus I think it is safe now, to declare the case of the 'Runtime Error 217' as finally solved. Can others also concur with the same?

I've never used that addon nor even the software title it installs, but what in the world could be in there that causes this sort of issue ?

I have been facing this problem for atleast 9-10 months, if not longer. Initially I attributed the problem to the 'IE7 beta 1' that I was using, back then it seemed the problem mostly occured upon closing an IE7 window. But then it started appearing that the problem was occuring even when closing down other programs and the problem had continued even after IE7 beta 2 came out. At different stages I considered various programs/addons responsible for the problem and have experimented by removing them, but have never been able to resolve the issue. When Kel removed 'Audio Shell Ext.' from the Uber pack, I started using 'Kels_AudioShellExt_addon_v1.2.CAB' and thus the problem still did not go away. It is only now for the first time that I have excluded this addon and finally, I don't have the problem anymore. Keeping my fingers crossed ofcourse.

It's audioshell. I got rid of it and the errors are gone. I'll add that I've never used anything from this site, nothing slipstreamed. It's THIS

http://www.softpointer.com/AudioShell.htm

Is Kel's audioshell a rip of this? (it's freeware so no reason why not) or maybe windows just conflicts with anything else reading the tags...prolly just audioshell though...

EDIT: Got the 1.3b, will report back on whether it still causes errors!

Yes my addon was a rip of that. I actually got permission to redistribute it. I am pretty sure I am gona pull outta it though because of these issues discussed in this thread...

The apparent issue with AudioShell is sad because Tag&Rename is a very popular tool. Both are by softpointer.

Personally, I've always used Mp3 Tag Studio for mass tagging/renaming. It's an awesome tool once you get past the steep learning curve.

I use Tag & Rename, hence why I had Audioshell installed. I say pull the current version but get everyone who had this problem to upgrade to the 1.3beta on the softpointer site. If the problem disappears just update to that. It's a useful addition.

It's been almost a month now and my windows installation has been running free of this error, thus I thought I'd update this thread with a final confirmation that the problem indeed was caused by 'AudioShell Extention v1.2'.

PS: Can anyone using 'AudioShell Extention v1.3b' confirm whether that version also causes the error or not?

I've been running 1.3b since my last post. No problems yet. Whatever was wrong with 1.2 seems to have been fixed in the 1.3b release.

Having lived with the 'error' for so long, I am finding it hard to gather up the courage to include 1.3b in my unattended DVD, although I do miss the functionality of Audio Shell Extention a lot. I guess I might just install it after windows install instead of using it as an addon.
