Flipshare won't install!!!

Hi, I just bought my Flip Ultra HD. I plugged it in to my computer to install Flipshare...but halfway during the install I got this message:

"There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A script required for this install to be complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor."

What could this mean? I have even tried downloading the program via theflip.com site. That gave me the same error.
I am using Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit.
My processor is an AMD Athlon X2 5600+ 2.8ghz.

Thank you. I hope this is solved soon! I really like my Flip and want it to work correctly!!

Hi,
The failure appears to be occurring because the installation script cannot obtain Scripting.FileSystemObject. This is most likely due to registrations belonging to your Windows ScrRun.dll being missing from your machine - and the problem may be specific to your machine configuration.


Click on the orb/start menu and type in the search box regsvr32.exe scrrun.dll

If the fix is successful
try running the install again.



Regards.

It's real simple to solve this problem. I had the same issue and I all did was update my software online by visiting the FlipVideo website:
http://www.theflip.com/en-us/App/fvsw/5.x/update/

From there, all you need to do is fill out the three of four blank fields and it will update your software so it will install without a problem.

I used the Best Solution listed above and did in fact get FlipShare to install. I had to use both steps outlined. However, IE stopped working as a result of either the steps above or the installation of the FlipShare software....now I am trying to fix IE. I am running IE 8 on an XP machine with Office 2007 installed.

When getting this error message, the other response below is correct, but there is no solution posted to fix. This is what to do:
Here is the solution. To get rid of programs that do not install correctly and are therefore not found in Add/Remove programs, use the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility found herehttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

If you have problems installing that, like I did, and get a message that a library wasn't registered, download this to reinstall VBScript to fix the files needed to run the cleanup utility:http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=C717D943-7E4B-4622-86EB-95A22B832CAA

Want to install the software for the Flip Ultra Hd for Windows 7 64 bit. How do I do it? Where do I get the software?


Actually I recently spoke to Flip Video about the same thing since I need to get a new computer which will be Windows 7 64 bit.
They said to just plug the camcorder into the computer USB 2 port and the camcorder will open FLIPSHARE on your computer screen and will download the updates itself unless you stop it from doing so.

I just got the flip ultra hd for christmas and was charging it then my computer screen went all weird and couldn't read the screen and all my icons on my computer were all big. i tried this three times and...


FLipSHARE software isn't compatible with Vista Aero and some other visual settings, SO, when you plug in your Fllip camera, the FlipShare software changes your desktop settings to go with their camera. They should go back to how you had visuals set before the camera was plugged in once you remove the camcorder. No green light shows when charged, a Red light shows up and glows during charge and when the red light goes out it is fully charged.

I'm having a hard time getting my Flip HD to charge. It is brand new and this is the first time I've had to charge it. Sometimes the red light is on and steady and other times the red light is flashing. ...


I had this charging problem with 2 new Flip Ultra HD cameras...red light flashing..nothing on the screen after plugging in the USB port.

I removed the battery..plugged camera into USB port..pc recognized the camera... installed flipshare software..updated software...plugged battery back in..all good.

Why on earth the book doesn't mention these steps is beyond me.

Trying to use movies saved in flipshare in movie maker want to save the flipshare files as mpeg, flipshare is saving them as jpeg How do I save the videos in flipshare as mpeg...why are they saving as...


Flip video camcorder has made its name world wide. It's very creative, cool and super simple. You can email videos (it will automatically compress and reformat the video to an acceptable size), save videos locally (you can organize them by creating folders), share videos online via AOL and edit them as well. It also has very simple yet functional video editing capacity; the four family members Flip Mino, Flip Mino HD, Flip Ultra and Flip Ultra HD will definitely meet demands of a large quantity of population with different preference.

At the time we are happy for ourselves for having purchased it to make some memorable videos that we can share in a blink of the eye with our friends and family. We find there is something flip video just can’t do, flip video produces h.264 and mp4 files. But some one would prefer the. Mpeg file as output format. Is there a shortcut to convert flip to mpeg?

Flip video to mpeg converter is a very powerful and easy-to-use Flip Video to mpeg video converter app. It can convert any Flip video to mpeg with flexible settings and high conversion speed. The program supports Flip Mino, Flip Mino HD, Flip Ultra and Flip Ultra HD. Flip video to mpeg converter allows you to convert multiple video files at a time, trim your video files to capture your favorite video clips, crop movie video, and set movie effects and so on.

Flip software (Flip Share) quits unexpectedly on my Mac 10.5.6


HERE IS WHAT FLIP VIDEO SENT FOR A FIX:
Dear Suzie,

Thank you for contacting us.

We will need to try to uninstall and reinstall the FlipShare program on your Macintosh computer. To do this please try the following:

2. Reboot the computer

If you are receiving the message, "Unable to update database file," when upgrading to FlipShare 5.6, there may be a corrupted file within your existing FlipShare database.

Please try the following to upgrade to the current version of FlipShare and import your videos into the application.


1. Copy your entire FlipShare Data folder onto your desktop or another drive
- the FlipShare Data folder can be found in "Username">Movies>Flip Share Data>
- ensure that you have copied all of the contents of the FlipShare Data folder and have secured a complete back-up of this file

2. Delete the FlipShare Data folder from your "Username">Movies>Flip Share Data>

3. Uninstall FlipShare
- MacIntosh HD > Library > Application Support > Pure Digital Technologies > FlipShare Uninstaller

4. Reboot your computer

7. Go to the Help directory and choose "Recover other FlipShare files..."
