Re: Want to remove Twonky Network Media Controller Stationar

I agree it is some rights issue or the system has the device in use somehow. Either way, I will likely use a Linux selfbooting CD made to correct such things that can remove the numerous registry keys related to the grayed out device.
Thanks again for your quick and thoughtful suggestions.

Re: Want to remove Twonky Network Media Controller Stationar

I did find many registry entries for 57076f6e-6b79-4d65-6462-000d61197edc. Unfortuately, I could not delete them. I suspect because the device is "in use".

Thanks again for the quick followup. My uuid is 57076f6e-6b79-4d65-6462-000d61197edc. I will do a registry search on that value.

Thank you for your quick and complete reply, however, I had no luck with your suggestions: ! -"you could either temporarily install twonky on the server then see if you can delete it then uninstall twonky" That will not work because the old server's IP and the new servers's IP differ.

I have the same problem. I upgraded from Twonky Server 5 to 6. That did not help. Did you ever get MKV files solved?

I noticed your script uses "asynchronous" rather than "synchronous". I don't know if that matters.
