Can't read data from registry in geovision

Hy everybody, one of my friends asked me to install a gv card into his pc, I don't even know if it's a genuine one or a fake, anyway, I installed gv 7050 v3, I guess is a fake version of software, and, after reboot , I keep getting this message : 'can't read data from registry', and the program stops .Can anybody tell me what can I do? By the way, thank you all for your great job in helping people, I give you all my best!

    Hi there, thanks for your answer, but I was wondering if there is something I am not doing right, because I installed a lot of counterfeit gv cards and none have caused me trouble and these one is driving me nuts because I even did a clean install of operating system (win XP sp 3) and even installed it in a different pc and the result was always the same : "can't read data from registry". In some other cases, I received some messages like "can't find key pro" or even "can't find usb protection key for newly.... " but I managed to solve the problem - most often they were caused by the attempt to install genuine gv software on a fake card or vice-versa, but this time I can't understand what is there that keeps me to run the software.Thanks again, wish you the best.

Try reinstalling the software again and full install it and then restart your PC and if it shows the same message then be sure that it is not the genuine software. OK

Please make sure that your motherboard does not have a VIA chipset. Can you post the exact specs of your machine. Also how old is the card, and what version of software are you installing (it says the version on the CD)?

Geovision GV600 card, moved to new computer, software can't read registry

I would try uninstalling any bloat ware that came with the PC. Then use C Cleaner to clean registry. Remove or turn off any antivirus. I prefer to remove before installing the software. You may also simply want to reinstall a clean copy of plain W7 so that you don't leave any bloatware lingering. Also try combofix to clean the computer.

The geovison cards have quite a few issues with winXP and up because of the way they switch inputs. Windows don't seam to know how to handle it, i would try installing the drivers for the device again. You should see 4 video capture cards as well as a pci-bridge installed.
I also highly recommend Zoneminder for cctv.

This problem could be because of the GV card version not compitable with GV main systems software you install please check the hardware version of the GV card and compare for compatibility. East way out downgrade to lower version of software. for example if you have version 8.1 install then install version 7.0 or something like that.
