Blank line in MSCONFIG connected to error 148:3?

Install any Adobe CS4 product on a Windows OS and the software adds some number of Startup items to MSCONFIG including CS4ServiceManager, AdobeCollabSync and a blank line with no Startup file name or Command Line entry.

Until Adobe's products added those Startup items, I had no software loading from my MSCONFIG Startup group. The blank line was disconcerting so I unchecked it. That, apparently, triggered the dreaded "error 148:3" message about a licensing problem. That error can be resolved by running LicenseRecover.exe, a file available for download from somewhere on the Adobe.com site. However, as long as the blank line in MSCONFIG is unchecked, CS4 products will continue to not run and will continue to display the 148:3 error message.

So...what does the blank line in MSCONFIG do? What is it? How is it that Adobe can add an unnamed Startup item to MSCONFIG?

This is not the place to discuss this. You might try the CS Windows forum. This forum is to discuss issues pertinent to the forums---not Adobe software support issues.

Well it never appeared there. Maybe he was satisfied with my answer.


(I wasn't bidding him good day!)

If you really want to know what is behind the "blank line", don't use MSCONFIG, but something that shows you all, like Autoruns (click on the Logon tab).

Now it's clear what you meant when you wrote "Bonjour."

Are you saying you think the blank line is Bonjour? Bonjour shows up in

the Startup listing as mDNSResponder.exe.

The blank line does not show up in the application in your link:

Autoruns (cool app by the way). The blank line is in the HKCU

(HKEY_CURRENT_USER) registry. The only other HKCU Startup App is

AdobeCollabSync and it does show up in Autoruns. So the blank line,

which is somehow connected to Adobe licensing, remains a mystery.

Your blank line is in the HKLM (HKey_Local_Machine) registry. Mine is in

HKCU. How is it that you know your blank line is Bonjour? And how can

you know that mine is Bonjour as well? I've had Bonjour (the folder --

the software is mDNSResponder.exe and mdnsNSP.dll) on my hard drive for

more than two years and the blank line showed up in the Startup services

group only within the past few weeks.
