Elsewhere ( http://community.wdc.com/t5/My-Book-World-Edition/WDMBWE-WD-Anytime-Backup-after-update/m-p/64962/highlight/true),,) roytom on 2010-10-11 opened the topic “WDMBWE - WD Anytime Backup after update”, to which I wish to reply (but somehow cannot).
Briefly, the situation is 1) you are running Windows 7 64-bits, 2) whenever you open a session you get the message:
“WD Anywhere Backup is still running”
followed by :
“WD Anywhere Backup is already running in another user session. Please quite the WD Anywhere Backup application in the other session if you want to launch it here.”
- Oddly, once these messages are dismissed, you have only one copy of WD Anywhere Backup running (and it is running smoothly).
Apparently the installer set up both the 32- and 64-bits versions of WDAB. The solution is to open RegEdit (as an administrator) and find the following key:
There you will find a “WD Anywhere Backup” entry of value “C:\Program Files (x86)\WD\WD Anywhere Backup\MemeoLauncher2.exe --silent”. Delete it.
This will leave you with another entry at:
It is also named “WD Anywhere Backup”, and has the value “C:\Program Files\WD\WD Anywhere Backup\MemeoLauncher2.exe --silent”: this is the correct 64-bit launcher.
