Actually, I checked, and mine seems to be using the 32 bit by default... Maybe that's because I upgraded from Vista?

This was that update:

"An update is available to remove the application manifest expiry feature from AD RMS clients"
An update is available to remove the application manifest expiry feature from AD RMS clients

Nah, upon reading that link, I'm not so sure it'll work, but I'll reboot and give it a try.

Nope, still same problem. Is that error logged somewhere? I guess I need to grope my event viewer.

Hopefully someone will have some kind of an answer for me, I've been beating my head against this DRM problem for a couple of weeks now, and it's getting kind of maddening, LOL.

So here's what happened... I had vista 64, and subscribed to this drm protected video series. At first, I had a problem with drm, and got it fixed. Cool. Then I upgraded to 7, and had another problem with drm, but managed to get it fixed again. Still cool. But now, the problem is back, and I can't seem to fix it this time... Not cool!

I think this is related to some sort of permissions problem... One of the times I fixed drm, I read that if you had admin privileges, that that could interfere with drm working correctly, so I gave up my admin rights, and voila! it started working.

Recently, right about the time drm stopped working, I'd started to notice some flaky permissions issues, programs that couldn't write to temp files, or installs that would fail, stuff like that, where you just have to select "run as administrator". I checked my permissions again, and saw that I was in ??debuggers?? group instead of users. Strange... after fixing that, now when there's a UAC prompt, I have to type in the admin user credentials, which was new.

One final thing about permissions... I thought maybe the problem was a file-level permissions issue with my user profile, so I tried to add a new local user... when I try to login to that new user, though, the computer just sits forever trying to create the desktop, and never actually gives a complete login. Insufficient privs? Not sure.

Anybody got any ideas? This is driving me nuts.

Thanks in advance,

Just in case... Is this a legit genuine copy of Win 7???

Win 7 64 bit

Yes, all legit and.... TADA! I got it! Finally got this biatch working!!! One of the fixes I'd used before was to rename the drm folder to drmold, but i wasn't able to do that under 7, because the folder was in use... So, I rebooted to safe mode, and THEN I was able to rename that folder, and then once I came back in, I got the rather well documented problems/fixes related to when the upgrade button is greyed out.
