    When i start the program to add/remove program, i have a window that pop-up and the titled is "Parser Message" (without the quotes) and in it it says Value creation failed " at line 472 . Anyone know how i can get this program working again or if it's not possible, a good alternative to this program.

    I have read about this somewhere else, and if I am not mistaken it had something to do with themes. But I am not quite certain. Someone else might know more but I believe it does have something to do with themes you may be running. Try switching to a different theme and see if that helps or try going to the Luna theme and trying it then.

    I thought it had to deal with the themes, I remember reading about it.

    It has to do with the actual coding of SHELLSTYLE.DLL, located in C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes\THEME_NAME\shell\

    This problem will occur in any theme/vstyle written before SP1 was released.
