  1. Did I help you? Consider a one time contribution to support new daily content on this channel.

  2. I tried to run regedit as an administrator and the error appeared saying that the endpoint mapper database entry could not be created. what should I do? plz help

  3. Mine was already cleared. Mine says programdata/Volute… no idea what that means but everytime I try playing a game it pops up that screen.

  4. For those that this did not help too much, when you open up the regedit as administrator, click on the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, press Ctrl+F on your keyboard, then search for whatever it says on your pop-up. Once you do that double click on the name and clear the "Value Data:" bar. Once you have done that, go to your control panel and uninstall the application then reinstall it. After that, you should be good to go!

  5. This did not work, went into the directory of the dll that threw the error, and added a .bak to the dll. error no longer appears.

  7. Thank you for this video, or the attempt at it rather, for some of us. I scroll down and I see the same people with a question similar to mine.

I wanted this to work so badly too, you have a short straight to the point 3 min (you the real MVP for the short bus BTW)… My hopes were high until my laptop showed me the line was already cleared.
