Tried to install Redshift 5 from latest cover DVD. On attempting to run I get the following: "The application has not been installed properly. Please run the installation of the original Cd and relaunch this application. (engine component AIM ctrls v126.96.36.199 or higher required)" Dialogue box continues to appear when I try to reinstall.
When I try to uninstall I get the following RUNDLL dialogue box: "Error loading c:\progra~1\common~1\profes~1\0701\intel32\ctor.dll the specified module could not be found"
I think you may need to download and install the latest version of the AIMEngine. After installing this, and restarting your PC, attempt to uninstall Redshift again.
click here for the installation file (this is a 'Preview TinyURL' - click on 'Proceed to this site' to download the executable file).
According to their support site, the installer messages are in German but the AIMEngine itself is compatible with the English version of RedShift. It installed and worked dependably on their test computers. RedShift 5 uses the AIMEngine to show the Help Manual, the AstroDictionary and the PhotoGallery.

Many thanks for that Richard, thats half of it solved! The Aim engine download has worked and I can now run Redshift. Out of interest I then tried to uninstall, and the same RUNDLL dialog box appears - I remember having missing DLL issues in the dim and distant and being informed that there is no easy workaround, any ideas?
