Error while unpacking program, code LP5,please report to author.

It seems to be caused by interference from other applications running on the computer such as AV products. It may also be possible that this Ceedo product you are using is the cause of the problems. Any extra info about how you are trying to run KeyboardTest could help us in troubleshooting the problem.

  • Programs as "packed" to reduce space, stop hacking and help prevent pirating of the software.
  • Good packing software is hard to write. So packing is often done using external software protection applications. One of these packages is "Armadillo" from Silicon Realms. Now called Software passport.
  • Protected programs are "unpacked" each time you run them. Normally this is not problem and you never notice it happening. When things go wrong during this process you get the LP5 message like, "Error while unpacking program, code LP5. Please report to author".
  • Only Silicon Realms really know what LP5 stands for. But it is enough to know that unpacking failed.
  • Sometimes, very rarely, you get a corrupted download that prevents correct unpacking of the software. The solution here is to get a new download package.
  • Also, very rarely, there is 3rd party software running on the same machine that interferes with the correct operation of the packed application. We saw this when CA's Antispyware had a bug that messed things up. The solution here is to identify the application causing the problem and uninstall it or get the bug fixed. Which is what we did for our software.

When i tries to download anything system shows the following error- " error while unpacking the program code LP5. pls contact author"

I think this is an issue with improper download try using a download manager

Possible Reasons:

1. LP5 means the package is corrupted. This can happen mainly because of some bad download or obsolete package.

2. Obsolete Antivirus

3. Improper Download Software

4. Flash drive

5. Spyware

6. interference from other applications running on the computer

7. During installation of security sites

Possible Solutions:

1. Check For the version of Anti virus

2. Goto control panel /Add Remove Programs/

3. In the list of installed programs we can see the antivirus version.

4. If it is obsolete, uninstall it and reinstall it with the latest one

5. Check For any 3rd party tool that may interfere with the unpacking of software

6. If so un install it.

7. Run Restore disks (or built-in System Restore). It will reinstall the software automatically.

8. Instead of flash drive, use any download manager

This code means there was a device failure due to the lack of an arbitrator. Open control panel, open System. Click on the Hardware button, click on Device Manager. You'll need to open each + & check for a Yellow ! point. The hard part is finding what device it belongs to. Once found right cilick on that device & uninstall. Re-start the notebook. Re-install the device drivers.
You read about this at the link provided.
If your still at odds with this, post back & we'll take another rout.
