Xmltv Crash

If XMLTV crashes on Windows during downloading of listings, possibly with a message like this:

 Unhandled exception at 0x28016ed7 in xmltv.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation
 reading location 0x00000017.

You might be able to get it working by trying these things:

  • First try rebooting - there may be an old version of the XMLTV exe running but stuck.
  • Second, find your Windows temporary folder and delete any folders whose name starts with "pdk-". If you don't know where the temporary folder is, open a DOS/Cmd window and type echo %TEMP%.
  • Third, try emailing to the XMLTV users' mailing list here: http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/xmltv-users
